The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of the company’s response to the product failure crisis on consumer reactions. Thus, the main issue behind this research is an existence of a product failure crisis. This research was tested using the attribution theory framework and situational business communication theory.
The test in this study used experimental methods to determine consumer reactions to the company’s response to the crisis of product failure that occurred. Through this research, initial knowledge about consumer reactions can be obtained, which can be developed to examine consumer behavior. The product used in this experiment is white bread. The participants involved in the research were students, so the unit of analysis was the individual.
