In 2007, there were 1,460 product recalls announced in the United States. Four years later in 2011, 2,363 consumer products were recalled throughout the country.
This large increase has been attributed to regulators paying closer attention to consumer safety, the use of social media where consumers warn other consumers of defective products, and enhanced testing procedures for defective products.
Regulators are now trying to answer the question concerning the best possible way to inform the public of these product recalls. They are reaching out on social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter, and have even begun to utilize sign postings in stores and national recorded phone calls.
