AAA

Costly Product Recalls

In 2017 Target Corp. decided to recall 560,000 Easter toys that include the  Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino.

While this recall may not have been very expensive to the company, there are many examples where a product recall could burn a hole in the company's financials.
