Part of the business risk exclusion in general liability insurance that denies coverage for subsequent claims if a defective product is not recalled by an insured. For example, if a consumer filed a damage suit against XYZ Co. claiming that he or she became sick while eating a can of soup from a particular lot that was contaminated, the insurer would not pay later claims filed by other consumers if the XYZ Co. did not recall that lot of the soup. The general liability insurance policy for businesses also excludes costs associated with the withdrawal of a product from the market whether it is ordered by a government agency or by company management. A business that wants coverage for product recall would need to buy product recall insurance to include the extra wages and other costs of identifying the faulty product, notifying consumers, correcting or repairing the product, and redistributing it.
