Manufacturing Defects

CALA's procedure in the event of a manufacturing defect

CALA utilizes 3rd party quality control inspections for most products, ensuring the highest standards of production and inspection possible. 


In the event that you or your customer receives an item and declares there is a defect with the item, the item must be returned to CALA for analysis if you are seeking a refund from CALA for the defect.


If you are participating in CALA fulfillment, your customer will ship the defective item back to the fulfillment warehouse, utilizing the standard returns procedure. At the end of each month, CALA will submit an order with the warehouse to receive any defective goods for analysis.


If it is determined that the defect is due to a manufacturing error, CALA will refund you the cost of goods for the defective product.


If it is determined that the defect or issue was caused by customer negligence, CALA will not refund our customer the COGS or fulfillment costs.


It is up to the you to determine your business practices as to whether or not a refund or replacement will be issued to the end-customer, and the timeline for doing so.
