Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Are you saying it's impossible to recall a product? That is patently not true. You make it sound like "the consumer chain" is untraceable.

The point is, they can only recall all the batches associated with the particular product name/producer they have discovered.  (I'm assuming that contamination is widespread across types of foodstuffs/producers.)  From the report, it seems China is the culprit (maybe other countries in the far east) because they have lax--or no--internal checks: if they have unhealthy practices across the board, the only effective result of sampling would be to ban all imports from there?

You can recall whatever you want, if you want to recall all chinese imports you can order a recall of that.
