Companies whether they are involved in manufacturing, retailing, wholesaling, exporting or distributing of products are vulnerable to product contamination.

The impact of a product contamination and possible recall of a product can be far reaching and have a devastating effect on the company’s profitability, brand name and reputation in the market place.  Years of investment of time and money to create a product and market share can be dramatically impacted almost overnight.

Contamination in chemistry, the term usually describes a single constituent, but in specialized fields the term can also mean chemical mixtures, even up to the level of cellular materials. All chemicals contain some level of impurity.

In food chemistry and medicinal chemistry, the term "contamination" is used to describe harmful intrusions, such as the presence of toxins or pathogens in food or pharmaceutical drugs.
