Many food manifacturers don't really care if the products they sell are contaminated with glass shards or stone fragments.


Perhaps that is cultural.

In the US they do care because real cases of contamination can lead to a decrease in profits. Continued problems (repeats) can lead to brand depreciation that can last for years. That is because there are always competitors and people are willing to pay more if they think there is a quality difference (which there realistically would be if one product continued to be contaminated.)
