Many medical device firms face regulatory issues as a result of inadequate complaint handling. FDA has explicit complaint handling requirements and poor complaint & reporting procedures often result in costly recalls and warning letters. FDA warning letters and recalls are posted on FDA's website and published in trade magazines, newspapers available to the firm's competitors, and have even driven the firm’s stocks down.
