(OPEN):
FOOD-RECALLS OCCURRED AT AN AVERAGE-RATE OF FOUR A DAY, IN THE THIRD-QUARTER OF 2012--AFFECTING NEARLY EIGHT-AND-A-HALF-MILLION UNITS OF FOOD AND BEVERAGES, AND REFLECTING A 57-PERCENT INCREASE, COMPARED WITH THE PREVIOUS QUARTER.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE LATEST "EXPERT-RECALL INDEX".  THE JUST-RELEASED REPORT ALSO FOUND THAT THE PHARMACEUTICAL AND MEDICAL-DEVICE INDUSTRIES BOTH RECORDED SHARP INCREASES IN RECALL-ACTIVITY--ACCOUNTING FOR THE MOST EVENTS RECORDED FOR EACH INDUSTRY IN MORE THAN TWO YEARS; HOWEVER, IN BOTH CASES, THE NUMBER OF UNITS THAT WERE AFFECTED ACTUALLY FELL.  MIKE ROZEMBAJGIER IS THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF RECALLS FOR STERICYCLE EXPERT-RECALL...

(ROZEMBAJGIER):
"
THE NUMBER OF RECALLS THAT WE SAW DURING THE THIRD-QUARTER IS TROUBLING.  BUT, AS WE ENTER THE HOLIDAY-SEASON, IT'S EVEN MORE WORRISOME TO KNOW THAT NEARLY ONE-QUARTER OF FOOD- AND BEVERAGE-COMPANIES THAT FACED A RECALL IN THE THIRD-QUARTER HAD MORE THAN ONE EVENT.  AS CONSUMERS ARE BOMBARDED WITH ADVERTISEMENTS AND OTHER MESSAGES FROM BOTH MANUFACTURERS AND RETAILERS, IT WILL BE MUCH MORE DIFFICULT FOR COMPANIES TO CUT THROUGH THE CLUTTER--AND CONNECT WITH CONSUMERS ON RECALLS.  THAT'S WHY BOTH OF THESE GROUPS NEED TO DO THEIR PART--TO ENSURE THAT THE FOOD THAT'S SERVED AT HOLIDAY-PARTIES IS SAFE."

(CLOSE):
THE "EXPERT-RECALL INDEX" IS COMPILED QUARTERLY FROM DATA ISSUED BY BOTH THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION, AND THE CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION.  THE COMPLETE REPORT FOR THE THIRD-QUARTER IS AVAILABLE AT "EXPERT-RECALL"-DOT-COM-SLASH-"RECALL-INDEX".
