Unfortunately that rule of accountability only applies to people, not corporations, these days.
But thanks to the right wing, corporations were given the rights of people without any of the punishments that people can get.
The only reason why some recalls are done is when the cost of recall is less than the cost of law suits.
If it was a person, they would face the death penalty or life in jail. A corp just will throw a single person under the bus as a scapegoat and still continue business as usual...

In the case of the nuclear power industry, they're indemnified... Even for vaccines... Both legal claims go through the government. A handy way to protect them from "mistakes"
