FDA medical device recalls hit an all-time high again last year. Now we really know why.

By Richard L. Bollinger


Back in 2016, MD+DI published an article titled “What’s Behind Medech’s Recall Epidemic?” by Joshua R. Dix, Suraj Ramachandran, and Darin S. Oppenheimer. It reported that FDA recalls hit an all-time high in 2014. It happened again in 2017 (Figure 1). Last year now holds the record. The 2016 paper blamed risk management. A valid claim, but that was only a symptom.
