EU Product Recalls Rising

Are there more unsafe products coming to market, or are we just noticing more and getting tougher on enforcing consumer-safety laws? 

The FT reports that more than two dozen dangerous-product notifications are being made each week on average across the EU. It says notifications are running at record levels and 43% up on the average figure for 2006, citing an analysis by law firm Lovells. 

Nearly half of this year’s 932 product recalls in Europe involve goods made in China. A third of the total involved toys. Neither particularly surprising given the present climate.
