Singh told authorities that he believed he had picked up compression springs in North York, Ontario.

The Institute for Supply Management reported Monday that its national factory activity index fell to 59.5 in July from 60.6 in June. A reading above 50 indicates expansion. Spending on manufactured products remained strong. But that pace is also cooling. More vaccinated Americans are splurging on services as they venture outdoors, travel, dine out and visit entertainment venues. What’s more, shoppers are encountering shortages of vehicles and appliances for sale. A global chip shortage is hurting production of cars and trucks. But investors got positive news on inflation.
