“Is Toyota’s Recall A Byproduct Of Lean?”

Please leave your thoughts on the comments section. Here are some thoughts to get you started:

I realize the question isn’t framed the best but this is honestly the way it is viewed in many circles. I say that Toyota got away from it’s lean principles of being close to the customers. I would argue that the same brake pedals across different product lines is not lean for the same reason we see now. The defects are not on one product line but several.
