Alert: In 2008, the FDA recalled more products than ever before. CDRH recalled 2,472 products, 131 of which were Class I; CDER recalled 379 products with 36 being Class I products; and CBER recalled 2,070 products, 27 of which were Class I products. Each recall can result in millions of dollars spent on damage control, advertisements and public relations professionals.
