(OPEN):
RECALLS OF MEDICAL-DEVICES--INCLUDING PRODUCTS SUCH AS INHALERS, NEEDLES, AND LATEX-GLOVES--INCREASED BY MORE THAN 160-PERCENT, IN THE FIRST-QUARTER OF 2012--AFFECTING MORE THAN FIVE TIMES AS MANY UNITS THAN IN THE PREVIOUS QUARTER.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE LATEST "EXPERT-RECALL INDEX".  THE JUST-RELEASED REPORT ALSO FOUND THAT CONSUMER-PRODUCT RECALLS INCREASED IN THE FIRST-QUARTER--WHILE PHARMACEUTICAL- AND FOOD-RECALLS DECREASED.  MIKE ROZEMBAJGIER IS THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF RECALLS FOR STERICYCLE EXPERT-RECALL...

(ROZEMBAJGIER):
"WHAT IS TROUBLESOME IS THE DRAMATIC INCREASE IN UNITS THAT ARE AFFECTED BY MEDICAL-DEVICE RECALLS--AS WELL AS THE CONTINUED NUMBER OF REPEAT-OFFENDERS.  IT'S SCARY TO THINK ABOUT--GIVEN THE INCREASING NUMBER OF DEVICES THAT AMERICAN-PATIENTS RELY ON, TO MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE THEIR HEALTH.  AND, WHETHER IT'S MEDICAL-DEVICES, MEDICINES, FOOD-PRODUCTS, OR TOYS, CONSUMER-SAFETY SHOULD BE THE NUMBER-ONE PRIORITY FOR EVERY MANUFACTURER, DISTRIBUTOR, RETAILER, DOCTOR'S-OFFICE, AND HEALTHCARE-FACILITY.
"

(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 FIRST-QUARTER IS AVAILABLE AT "EXPERT-RECALL"-DOT-COM-SLASH-"RECALL-INDEX".
