Abstract (summary)
This paper aims to understand why firms expedite or delay product recall decisions involving international sourcing. Design/methodology/approach: this paper combines US toy recall data from the Consumer Products Safety Commission database for the period from 1988to 2011 with World Economic Forum data on institutional environments to predict the effect the host country conditions have on recall timing decisions.
