Recoil corrections to the atomic decay rate are considered in the order of Zm/M . The expressions are treated exactly without any expansion over Z alpha. The expressions obtained are valid both for muonic atoms (for which they contribute on the level of a few percent in high Z ions) and for electronic atoms. Explicit results for Lyman-alpha transitions for low-Z of the order (Zm/M)(Z alpha)^2 are also presented.
