The only recommendation I would have is to talk to an attorney and make sure you understand the liabilities should there be a lawsuit.
Nothing agaist trial lawyers, but there need not be any real fault or damages, and a lawsuit can be brought none the less. Some people are professional clients.
Oh come on. As an attorney, I have a pretty thick skin, but notwithstanding your assurance that your comment is "nothing against trial lawyers," this is the most forced, opportunistic criticism of the bar I've ever seen. It probably is
a good idea to talk to an attorney to make sure that you are on the right path, but the suggestion that trial lawyers are circling the wagons around someone who markets BBQ rub on a small scale is just absurd. Beware, trial lawyers are afoot -- BOOGA BOOGA BOOGA!!
Besides, he's already insured -- isn't that what insurance is for?
Remember, people can and will bring ridiculous litigation with or without lawyers. I turn down 20 cases for every case I take and I guarantee you some of these nutjobs go ahead and sue on their own anyway. All that you need to file suit is the ability to write up your claim, walk to the courthouse, and file it -- no lawyer necessary.
Back on point, I think this is a great idea, especially if they can make it for less than you make it yourself. I like your first shot at the label, too, especially the "1/1000 of a ton" part!!!
Feel free to drop me a PM if you'd like any guidance on what sorts of legal issues you need to keep in mind as you move forward. If you've already got your LLC set up and are insured, though, you're already well on your way.
