If you never signed anything with the supplier, you have nothing to worry about. Let the supplier eat it.

I think that this is easy to say. What would you suggest he do? Let's say he does go to the supplier. What happens when they say, we are not eating this? Now you have to get a lawyer involved and sue them for breach of contract.

I love it when people make things sound so easy. Usually means they have never had to go head to head with someone over a contract dispute.
