Abstract (summary)
We examine the impact of firm ownership (public vs. private) and perception of the reputation of the quality of suppliers of the country from where products are sourced on time to recall of defective products from the market. Operationalizing time-to-recall as the time that has elapsed from the date of first sale in the market to the date it was recalled, we test the influence of the interplay between firm ownership and perception of the reputation of the quality of suppliers of the country on time to recall using data on 400 toy recalls issued in the United States during 2007-2018. We find that time to recall is shorter for publicly traded firms than it is for private firms. This effect is more pronounced when the products are sourced from countries with poor perception of the reputation of the quality of suppliers. We discuss research and managerial implications of our findings.
