I would recommend Full on production, but read up on the different types and decide which suites your environment and needs best:

Msg 8134, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Divide by zero error encountered.

Not all databases need to be in Full recovery model.

If you currently need to, or may need to in the future, be able to recover your database to a point in time - then choose full recovery model.

If the data in the database never changes or there is no need to ever recover to a point in time, then go with simple recovery.

The default recovery model will be whatever you have your MODEL database recovery model set to currently.
