About FDA

Percentage of biological product recalls classified by OCBQ under Direct Recall Classification (DRC), within 45 days of receipt of additional information

Dictionary: Recalls are a firm's removal or correction of a marketed product that the FDA considers to be in violation of the laws it administers and against which the agency would initiate legal action, e.g., seizure. Recalls may be conducted on a firm's own initiative, by FDA request, or by FDA order under statutory authority. Recalls are classified by FDA as Class I, II, or III, based on the probability that use of the recalled product will result in adverse health consequences. Class I situations represent a reasonable probability of serious adverse health consequences or death, Class II situations represent a remote probability, and Class III situations represent an unlikely probability. CBER has implemented a Direct Recall Classification (DRC) system that allows OCBQ to work directly with recalling firms in the submission of information necessary to classify the recall without expenditure of resources from FDA District Offices. This measure will allow OCBQ to monitor its performance in issuing recall classifications under DRC within timeframe goals.
