It seems the problem is at an all-time high. Daily news articles reveal recalls due to product mislabeling. Everything from peanut butter to medications have been taken off the shelves in recent months, many companies explaining that there is nothing wrong with their product, it just does not contain the necessary warning label or ingredient listing. The questions beg to be asked. Why were these voluntary recalls necessary? Why were these products not correctly labeled from the beginning? What can be done to rectify the situation as well as prevent similar mistakes?

Many companies struggle with running their in-house laboratories due to the high fixed costs associated with them. The problem often originates because many company's testing project needs vary over time both in size and importance but the lab itself has large fixed costs regardless of usage. Lab outsourcing is when all or certain testing and analysis functions are done through an independent laboratory instead of being done in-house. This can be done in a variety of areas from R&D, failure analysis, competitive product analysis, to patient litigation support services.
