Would you recall a product that would kill lives if you calculate that paying the lawsuits would be less expensive than recalling the product?

Yes. Even in the purest business sense, your reputation has a value as well.

Welcome to the automobile industry. This is done all the time.

No.

Depends on price calculation between the two

I watched Fight Club too bro

Yes, the risk of it getting out is too great. When it inevitably did, my reputation would be ruined. Customers wouldn't buy my shit, suppliers wouldn't work with me etc.

Better to take the hit, lose some money so I can keep making money in the future.

Thanks for the PSA Edward Norton.

iirc a company :didn't: recall a product (a car iirc) because it was more profitable not to

fucked their shit up when word got out

Ford Pinto. Its the reason you Americans have punitive damages. Interesting read.

Happens for reals, yo

>The company...paid compensation for 124 deaths. The fault had been known to GM for at least a decade prior to the recall being declared

Depends...

Lets say it's a car and the brakes are gonna fail, which is gonna totally fuck someone, yeah I'd recall it.

If it's like a kids toy, and 1 in 1 million dolls, a foot is gonna fall off, and a kid MIGHT swallow it and choke, nah I'm not recalling it.

Why wouldn't you? Ladders and bathtubs literally could not exist without this rationale. Should the whole world stop producing anything that someone might possibly hurt themselves with simply because a small but litigious minority of users die?
>>
>>981841
you aren't going to 'calculate' the true cost of the feds fucking you in the ass, potential jail time for gross negligence, and the ill-will of society based on your reputation

what about brand image nigger?

Holy fucking shit dude, I'm taking Business Ethics 101 too!

Every business major ever has taken this course before and there is literally no point in asking that fucking loaded question.

Who's the bangbros bitch?

Absolutely, then I would notify the public through some sort of ad campaign. Johnson & Johnson did just that whenever their baby Advil was killing babies. They lost money from the recall, but have gained long-term from the move by creating an image of care and safety for the company.
