I'd like to know whether or not there is a possible way to match NDC codes in different formats by using openFDA API like Recall Enforcement Reports. For example, matching 0187-0798-30 with 0187-079-830 but without the hyphen, it is the same number.

Using a simple regular expression, you can convert the NDC number to the expected format and then query the API.
