Recalls are typically related to product safety and compliance issues. There are two main types of recalls:
When a recall is initiated and announced publicly by government agencies, manufacturers, or vendors, it is considered as a public recall. Public recalls typically pose a public health or injury risk. These announcements usually describe the nature of the product issue, scope of impacted products, and customer remedy.
A private recall happens when a manufacturer or vendor directly notifies retailers and supply chain partners about a product safety, compliance, quality, or other issue, and removes the impacted products from sale.
We prioritise customer safety first and foremost.
We do not allow sellers to list recalled products.
The privilege of selling a recalled product (and similar products) at our store may be suspended or your account may be suspended in case you were not cooperative with the recall process or we detected any policy violations. We appreciate your selling on our store with safety and compliance of your listing items confirmed at your own responsibility.
We will send you an email notification with a description of the issue. After receiving the notification, review your inventory and remove any of your listings or product advertisements that might be affected by the notification.
We will send notifications to customers who have purchased the product(s) affected by recalls that can result in potential safety issues. Do not ship any pending orders for these products once you have become aware of the recall. For Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) sellers: all pending FBA customer orders for these products will be cancelled.
