What is the general average position where deck cargo has been saved by a general average act?

If deck cargo is saved by a general average act (e. g. the refloating of a grounded ship), the owner of the deck cargo will be liable to make a general average contribution along with other parties to the adventure who have benefited from the general average act. Carriers usually underline this by an express statement in their Bills of Lading.
