CPSC to Hold Workshop on Recall Effectiveness
The CPSC will hold a workshop July 25 on potential ways to improve the effectiveness of consumer product recalls. The workshop will have a group discussion of what makes an effective recall, how to measure success, as well as some common obstacles. Participants will then break out into smaller groups for discussion of topics such as communicating the hazard, consumer motivation, in-store notification, social media, and other forms of notice. Individuals interested in attending the workshop should register by July 3 and suggestions for additional topics for the workshop should be submitted by June 23.
