One of the important developments in economic life in recent years has been the greatly increased production of packaged and labeled goods, advertised and distributed nationally by the manufacturer. The scope of the retailer's function has been correspondingly reduced, especially in regard to inspection. Naturally there has resulted a tendency in the law to increase the responsibility of the manufacturer to the consumer.
