I think part of the problem is that because of a few, but well known, cases of fraud, the whole idea of “retraction” has acquired a stigma. Retracting a paper these days is practically seen as admission of fraud rather than the original intent of getting an honestly incorrect paper out of the literature.
Katie Palmer seems overly optimistic to me. Spend 10 minutes browsing retractionwatch.com and form your own opinion.
