Abstract

So long as manufactured goods reached the ultimate consumer with the help of a single sales transaction, the producer's liability for defective goods did not present a special problem. A consumer worthy of protection had at his disposal the two basic categories of civil liability: contract and tort. The problem of his remedies, however, became acute with the elongation of the process of manufacturing and distribution.
