Selling Eggs

Does anyone have any information as regards your liability if you sell eggs and the person gets sick (lets say salmonella).

I am keen to sell at the bottom of the garden but for the little it returns, it is not woth any risk.

Views appreciated, Keith

How many eggs are we talking about keith ? I sell all my eggs to friends, family and neighbours and have done for years, those that don't come back i assume died of salmonella, seriously keith don't panic unless you're selling to shops, pubs etc.

Thanks folks, useful (mostly  :wave:), I am just selling 20-30 eggs per week so the honesty box is the way forward for me I think, Keith

Yeah. Sorry. ;D. I knocked up an honesty box out of a pallet. Nice little thing with a pitched roof. We're pretty rural but anything I put in there goes for 1.20 a box which is good by me but no more than pocket money really.

Pays for something though.

If you want to be really sure, I had an insurance guy round yesterday from NFU  (to discuss all sorts of more major things to do with buildings) but he said there is a special smallholder/homeworker insurance. The intention of this is to cover you in case anybody becomes ill through consuming your product. It's mainly aimed at those producing food of whatever form (in my case apple juice but jams, cider etc.), especially if they sell through farmers markets where it is compulsory. He reckoned it was about 50 a year so it would probably wipe out most of your egg profits but could give you peace of mind....

Thanks for the input, 50 is not a lot for piece of mind and if you are doing more than eggs (fruit, sheep etc) then it works, K

This wasn't the full public liability - just a specific one for smallholders working on a small scale from home. I've been trying to find the details on their website but can only find this:

Overview

We offer a range of common sense insurance covers that are as flexible as the way you work; whether you operate a professional business from home, grow your own produce or make and sell products on a small scale.

Our working from home insurance is only available to policyholders insuring their home contents with us.


We're going to need to get public liability and holiday cottage insurance too which I'm sure will be a whole lot more expensive.
