What constitutes a product defect?

The best definition of a product defect is if a product is not reasonably safe for its intended purpose. That can be the result of a manufacturing defect, it can be the result of a design defect, it could be the result of a manufacturer’s failure to give proper instructions or warnings. Any of those items could result in a product becoming not reasonably safe for its intended purpose, and that would constitute a defective product.
