The article merely stated they failed to follow the required reporting processes, not that there were injuries or deaths.

And look at it this way, cutting back on paperwork saves any company money and that is a savings when you buy their product. Hey, it's money on our pockets, why not.

I for one am willing to give FR the benefit of the doubt. After all, it is a major corporation If the software did not include the necessary program, I believe the steps FR is taking to resolve the problem should mitigate the issue.

As we use to be told by GM, it's the cost of doing business.

InFo Tech people can get a program going in less than a week, I work with I T people all the time. FR should be given no benefit of the doubt. This is a large Corporation that must have a decent I T department. They just wanted to skirt the reporting for what seems to be reasons that make their product look bad, to the point of FR being liable for said, Recalls, Safety issues and Warranty issues.
