After three consecutive quarters with 200 or more food recalls under the Food and Drug Administration’s jurisdiction, the second quarter of 2017 broke the trend.

From May through June this year the there were 178 food recalls of FDA-regulated products in the U.S., according to a report compiled by Stericycle Expert Solutions Inc. That’s an 11 percent decline compared to the first three months of 2017. Even with that decrease, Q2 for 2017 still saw more food recalls of FDA regulated foods logged than were recorded from Q1 of 2013 through Q2 of 2016.
