Medical Device Inspections -
An introduction to how FDA inspections are conducted with an emphasis on medical device inspections.

Product Recalls -  
21 CFR 806 explains the medical device recall process.  Along with 806, it also covers part 7, and provides links to other guidance documents. It provides a big picture view of the recall process highlighting key elements before, during, and after a correction/removal.
