When an unsafe or defective product is released to the market, companies will recall the product as soon as possible to avoid liability.
Cars have been some of the most common recalls in recent months. Passage (eat) on Sept. 1 recalled nearly 500,000 vehicles for fan motor and rearview camera problems.
BMW recalled four models of its electric vehicles in August due to the risk of battery fires.
Also in August, Kraft Heinz (KHC) recalled 5,760 cases of Capri Sun Wild Cherry flavored juice pouches, or approximately 230,000 juice cases, that may have been accidentally contaminated with cleaning solution. A diluted form of cleaning solution used to clean food processing equipment was “inadvertently introduced into a production line” at one of the company’s factories, according to a company statement.
