Medical Device Recalls Soar During First Quarter, ExpertRECALL Index Shows
Date:5/14/2012

ain, whether a distributor or a doctor, should keep close tabs on the products they handle to ensure that potential safety concerns are identified early and reported to the manufacturer and the regulatory agency. This due diligence ensures that the impact of recalls, when they do happen, is minimized. Ultimately fewer units, and thus fewer consumers, will be affected."

The ExpertRECALL Index also found that while pharmaceutical recalls hit a five-quarter low, the recalls documented in FDA Enforcement Reports affected more units than in the previous four quarters. Of the recalls documented, 20 percent affected over-the-counter drugs while 80 percent affected prescription medications.

Consumer product recalls initiated at the request of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) increased 24 percent quarter-over-quarter with fire hazards as the leading cause of recalls. While the consumer product category overall logged more recalls compared with the previous quarter, recalls of children's products reached a five-quarter low and accounted for just 13 percent of CPSC recalls.

Food recalls documented in first quarter FDA Enforcement Reports decreased 19 percent. Of first quarter recalls, 56 percent earned the FDA's most severe "Class I" designation.

The 2012 first-quarter ExpertRECALL Index is the only report that aggregates and tracks cumulative recall data from the CPSC and the FDA. Stericycle ExpertRECALL compiles the ExpertRECALL Index from data issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
