Recall related press releases and alerts submitted

This measure was archived on August 31, 2010.

Dictionary: Recall related firm press releases are those initiated by the manufacturer on the product being recalled. Issuing a Class I recall press release notifies the American public about the presence of an unsafe product on the market. Publishing these notifications encourages the public not to use potentially hazardous products. The Office of Enforcement (OE) encourages all product manufacturers to issue firm press releases about all recalls but cannot require this.
