Defective Match

The plaintiff, a 7-year-old girl, struck a match in order to light a candle. A spark from the match ignited the entire match book, which literally exploded in her hands, igniting the cotton flannelette nightgown she was wearing. She was burned over 70% of her body. The striking surface of the matchbook was improperly positioned by the manufacturer.
