Even after working 14 years in the Product Liability Insurance industry, I was shocked at by the facts in “Product Recall and Traceability.” The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 48 million cases of food-borne illnesses result in 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths every year.[sc:InfoGraphic imagealt=”Foodborne illness” imageurl=”https://www.products-liability-insurance.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Food-Borne-Illness.jpeg” imagewidth=”400″ imageheight=”1210″ permalink=”https://www.products-liability-insurance.com/scary-foodborne-illness-facts/” infographictitle=”Food poisoning” ]
We found the facts below interesting and think members of the food industry will, too.
I realize that it is unrealistic to expect all start-up and small food companies to carry product recall insurance. However, it’s imperative that food companies have a product recall program in place. And it must be quickly implemented when it becomes apparent there is a problem.
Maybe developing your own product recall program sounds overwhelming. If so, check out Chapter 7: Recall Procedures in the FDA’s Regulatory Procedures Manual.
