As long as the vendor/manufacturer takes responsibility and actions to stop the safety issues, the brands may still maintain integrity.

while @williamK makes a point about the media speading the fear, I think some of the driving force behind this stems from the awareness the industry now has about counterfeit parts and the legal obligation the industry now has in tracking and reporting these parts. This level awareness and understanding wasn't top of mind a couple years ago.

prabhakar_deosthali - I see your point in saying that product recalls may not be a top concern falling on a supply chain professional's shoulders. But, really, it's everyone's responsibility from design, to sourcing, to manufacturing to sales/marketing... if anyone along this process sees a potential danger in a particular part of system, they need to make everyone aware of that and try to prevent it from getting into consumer's hands, or if it's out in the supply chain, being proactive in trying to get the products back.

@Lily: That is strange since when you do something online, you should realize what to produce and what not to. That is security.

Why consumer safety?

One reason that I see for safety being listed so high is that the news media keeps trumpeting about anything that may possibly have the appearance of being unsafe. Panic sells papers, and gets newscast ratings, and all of those other marks that a product is selling well. And what better way to sell your news than to constantly trumpet every hazard, real or imagined? Rmember that old song from the eighty's, "Dirty Laundry"? it pointed out the truth, and the media has certainly not relaxed in the push for profits since then.

@Tom - Right - or cause your vehicle to accelerate out of control. I wasn't thinking of such catastrophic failures, but they can happen.

Yes. Customers' life security is the top one concern which can not be handled just at the cost of money.

Eldredge: All good points, but you left the big one out -- a bad part can burn down your house and kill your family.
