Food, Drug, Medical Device Recalls Continue to Climb According to ExpertRECALL Quarterly Index
Date:11/3/2011

INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Food recalls in the third quarter affected nearly six times as many units as the previous three-month period, according to the quarterly ExpertRECALL™ Index, released today. The ExpertRECALL Index also found that pharmaceutical and medical device recalls increased while recalls for children's and infants' products and consumer goods hit surprising five-quarter lows.

Undeclared allergens remained the leading factor in initiating food recalls, as more than 50 percent of all food products were recalled for this reason during the third quarter. Listeria-related recalls were the second-leading cause, accounting for 25 percent of all food recalls listed on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's website between July and September.

"Based on third-quarter recall activity, product safety remains a hot topic among consumers, manufacturers, retailers and regulators," said Mike Rozembajgier, Vice President of Recalls at Stericycle ExpertRECALL. "Now, as we enter the holiday season, everyone should be reminded of their role in supporting consumer safety to make sure that not only the products we use, but also the gifts we give, are safe for everyone."

"Manufacturers and retailers must pay close attention to consumer safety and be more diligent when communicating with consumers, particularly as shoppers increase their purchases during the holiday season," added Rozembajgier. "And while regulators will need to pay close attention to product safety complaints, particularly about the hottest gifts of the season, consumers need to keep their eyes and ears open for recall announcements about not only the products they buy for themselves, but also about the gifts they are giving."
