In 2015, USDA recalled approximately 150 food products. The CPSC averages one recall every day. But mandatory food recalls are rare; most recalls originate with the company that produces the food product. The CDC and other reporting systems of FDA-regulated products can also recommend a food product recall.
It’s important to act quickly once its determined that a food product should be recalled for safety issues in order to prevent product liability claims by consumers. Consumer injury claims can result in costly compensations and even lawsuits for everyone involved in the distribution chain.
If you manufacture, distribute, package or sell food products, it’s highly recommended that you carry Product Recall Insurance. Don’t get caught by surprise by the costs that you can incur in a recall even if no consumer claims are made.
