The author examines the roots of product liability controversy, including several early cases developing the law, and reviews recent cases suggesting some important modifications in this field. Emphasis is placed on changes in the duty to warn, res ipsa loquitur, and contract formation as exemplified in the cases of Moran v. Faberge, Inc. and Giant Food, Inc. v. Washington Coca-Cola Bottling Co.
