Recalls are a firm's removal or correction of a marketed product that the FDA considers to be in violation of the laws it administers and against which the agency would initiate legal action, e.g., seizure. Recalls may be conducted on a firm's own initiative, by FDA request, or by FDA order under statutory authority.
Market Withdrawals are a firm's removal or correction of a distributed product which involves a minor violation that would not be subject to legal action by the FDA, or which involves no violation.
Recalls older than 2 years are available on FDA Archive.
