There is sufficient research on product recalls remedy, but not enough on recalls prevention. Not surprisingly, the shortage of research on recalls prevention coincided with the preponderance of product recalls observed in recent history. This study extracted the antecedents of recalls prevention from various research by applying the strategies of supply chain quality management. 76 articles were examined using a summative approach to qualitative content analysis to extract, estimate and compare the meaning of emerging constructs. The final constructs led to the synthesis of a framework for supply chain quality management with four layers of antecedents identified as PEP-I (Product, Equipment, Process, and Intervention) to help prevent the production of defective products.
