This pattern began against the background of the 19th century common law, which emphasized freedom of contract and caveat emptor (let the buyer beware).

One of the earliest examples was the deplorable conditions in the American meat packing industry which were exposed by Upton Sinclair in his best selling 1905 novel The Jungle. The outrage generated by Sinclair and other investigative writers led to the creation of the Food & Drug Administ...
