Product recall policies can also be extended to cover business interruption losses or damage to brand reputation/rehabilitation expenses.
Products Liability covers only the claim and suits arising from a defective product that a company has sold. This is usually only triggered following property damage or injury caused by the product.
Product Guarantee covers the actual replacement or repair of the defective product
