Auto recalls continue on rising trajectory, while food and consumer product notifications drop according to Stericycle Q1 2017 Index
London, UK – 09 May 2017. Faulty airbags were a major contributory factor behind another climb in automotive recalls in Europe during the first quarter of this year, according to the Recall and Notification Index published by Stericycle ExpertSOLUTIONS, the global leader in automotive and product recall solutions.
Conversely, the number of recalls relating to consumer products dropped by a significant 25.4%, indicating that the high figures recorded at the end of last year were an anomaly when compared with quarter on quarter trends. However, the 364 recalls recorded were still at higher levels than in four of the last seven quarters.
