Food and Beverage Products

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that each year roughly 48 million Americans get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and over 3,000 die from foodborne diseases. 

In 2015, there were 644 food recalls according to the USDA. That’s almost two recalls every day of the year! Managing product recall risk does not end with good food safety practices. A well-rounded risk management program should include a combination of effective preventative controls and insurance. Product Recall / Contamination Insurance is the most effective means of protecting businesses from an unlikely but potentially devastating situation.
