Duquesne Law Review


The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has adopted the Restatement 2d, Torts, Section 400, which provides that "one who puts out as his own product a chattel manufactured by another is subject to the same liability as though he were its manufacturer." Strict liability now applies, not only to the manufacturer of defective products unreasonably dangerous, but also to distributors of such products.

Forry v. Gulf Oil Corporation, 428 Pa. 334, 237 A.2d 593 (1968).
