§ 4209. Encoding and retention warranties.
(a) Encoding warranty.--A person who encodes information on or with respect to an item after issue warrants to any subsequent collecting bank and to the payor bank or other payor that the information is correctly encoded.

If a customer of a depositary bank undertakes to retain an item, that bank also makes this warranty.
(c) Measure of damages for breach of warranty.--A person to whom warranties are made under this section and who took the item in good faith may recover from the warrantor as damages for breach of warranty an amount equal to the loss suffered as a result of the breach, plus expenses and loss of interest incurred as a result of the breach.
