This Article will consider the nature of the term defect and the judicial characterization of the strict liability cause of action. An analysis of the "defect" concept and of the nature of the strict products liability cause of action indicates that the cause of action is not based on principles of fault. If doctrines of comparative negligence are applied to the products liability action, an inevitable collusion of fault and no-fault concepts will occur.
