abnormal loss

The loss arising from a manufacturing or chemical process through abnormal waste, shrinkage, seepage, or spoilage in excess of the normal loss. It may be expressed as a weight or volume or in other units appropriate to the process; it is usually valued on the same basis as the good output. An abnormal gain is an unexpected surplus of output that may occur if the actual loss is less than anticipated.
