With vastly improved national network of food safety surveillance capabilities, an increasing number of problems associated with food products (from pathogens to allergens) are being identified, and more products are being recalled. For this reason, if you process or sell food products, the question is not whether your company will someday be forced to issue an expansive recall, the real question is when.
If you are forced to announce a recall, your company could suffer millions of dollars in losses from the direct recall costs alone. In turn, your customers may sue you for their own commercial injuries (which could total millions), and injured consumers could bring significant personal injury claims of their own.
Whether you are sourcing product from suppliers, or selling product to customers, a well-written contract can protect you from liability from your customers and recover your own losses from your suppliers. A little planning and some savvy contract negotiation today could save your company millions tomorrow.
