Product Recall & Contamination

The product recall and contamination insurance market continues to expand and develop. Coverage is becoming more common place with an increasing number of companies purchasing polices to supplement their risk management programs. New carriers have provided additional capacity and policy wording continues to develop around new exposures and case law. Several high profile events have influenced the manner in which underwriters view and approach risks while regulators and the media continue to focus on issues of product safety.

2018 Emerging Trends in Product Recall and Contamination Risk Management

With 2017 being characterized as the costliest year on record for weather disasters, questions remain concerning how this may challenge specialty insurers with tightening capacity as alternative options seek investor capacity. Increased risk through the supply chain, social media, and technology also confront underwriters. Despite these challenges, the product recall insurance market has matured and, together with proper risk management techniques, is an essential piece of most product-safety risk programs.

Crisis Consulting Services

It is important to note the more rapidly you respond in an emergency and, in particular, the message being communicated to your customers, may influence the severity of the loss. In addition to risk transfer, restaurant contamination policies provide 24/7 access to crisis consultants who are available to assist you in managing the incident. Consultant fees and expenses are covered under the policy without the application of a deductible. These consultants are comprised of food safety and crisis communication specialists that work independently from the insurance company.
