Product Recall Counseling

At Tarpey Wix, we recognize that product recalls can present a major crisis to manufacturers, retailers and distributors. We know firsthand the potential risks involved with any product recall, including reduced profits, damages to product brand and loss of goodwill and reputation with customers. Proper coordination and implementation of a product recall is essential in reducing these potential risks. Companies that fail to respond quickly, efficiently and appropriately to a product recall situation run the risk of permanent damage to their product brand and increased potential for product liability exposure.

Our Services

We routinely advise clients confronting product recalls and food-borne illness outbreaks. We have experience coordinating and advising clients on numerous national and global product recalls involving a wide variety of products. As part of our work on these high-profile matters, we work closely with clients to:

  • Develop appropriate litigation strategies
  • Interact with governmental and regulatory agencies
  • Retain high-quality, first-rate experts
  • Respond to media inquiries
Product safety issues are of paramount concern to both government regulatory agencies and the general public. With this increased scrutiny focused on product safety, we recognize the importance of understanding and complying with the various rules, regulations and reporting requirements faced by manufacturers of consumer products, drugs, medical devices, vehicles, vehicle equipment and food producers. We provide guidance on complying with the rules and regulations of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, including the recently enacted Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008, the United States Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration and the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration.
