Product recalls are a worrying prospect for any business, threatening both financial loss and damage to a company’s brand and reputation. CFC’s product recall insurance policies provide comprehensive cover for a variety of industries and recall scenarios, ranging from product guarantee to contamination events including cyber product tamper and software product safety. Often, the most challenging and expensive part of a recall is keeping the business operational while facing intense public and regulatory scrutiny.

There are two main products available:

Contaminated product recall – cover for food & beverage manufacturers.

Product recall – cover for a wide range of non-food industries ranging from consumer products to household goods and automotive parts.

Extensions are also available responding to emerging risk and increasing exposure in the manufacturing space which wouldn’t traditionally be covered by recall policies. Examples of these are animal by-product (for meat free products) and religious specification both responding outside the traditional bodily injury triggers.
