+1 for B.

A. having pulled the product, led to

B. pulled the product, leading to --> Correct, maintains parallelism, and "leading to" modifies verb-ed form prior the immediate comma

C. pulling the product, leading to

D. pulled the product, led to

E. pulled the product, having led to

Hence, B.

A. having pulled the product, led to

"having pulled" is not parallel to "contributed" INCORRECT

B. pulled the product, leading to

"contributed" and "pulled" are parallel. The modifier "leading" explains the result of the previous clause. CORRECT

C. pulling the product, leading to

"pulling" is not parallel to "contributed" INCORRECT

D. pulled the product, led to

Seems like a run-on sentence. "led to" is missing a subject. INCORRECT

E. pulled the product, having led to

Meaning error. This incorrectly states that the manufacturer led to the share drop and pulled the product. INCORRECT

Hence option B

Proper uses of cause & effect structure with a participle modifier. It has also a parallel structure "conceded ....... and pulled ......".
