Since the doctrine of caveat emptor gave way to a more enlightened response, the courts have struggled to place the law of products liability on a proper doctrinal foundation. Negligence, implied warranty, and strict liability have been used, but as yet no universally accepted theory has emerged. In light of this problem this article will trace the development of seller's liability in Florida. Special emphasis will be placed upon implied warranty; in addition, the relationship between existing Florida case law, strict liability under the Restatement of Torts and the warranty provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code will be examined.
