When the U.S. issues a recall, do Caribbean governments follow?

That was the question on my mind a few days ago after hearing that one of the most popular twitter pages was the FDArecalls (more than 150,000 followers) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This help disseminate the information when the government issues a recall.

Considering that many of the products sold in the region come from the United States, does your country issue a similar recall? What types of procedures are implemented when recalls are issued? How do government agencies notify their public of a recall? Do customers receive exchanges or refunds on their product? If you bought a product in the U.S. and sent it to a relative in the Caribbean, and a recall was issued, do you alert your relative?
