WHAT IS THE EXACT FEDERAL STATUTE FOR PRODUCT LIABLITY?
Thank you for your question.

There is no federal products liability law, according to
http://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/products_liability

There is a Florida statute, 768.81(1)(d), that defines it as follows:
 “Products liability action” means a civil action based upon a theory of strict liability, negligence, breach of warranty, nuisance, or similar theories for damages caused by the manufacture, construction, design, formulation, installation, preparation, or assembly of a product. The term includes an action alleging that injuries received by a claimant in an accident were greater than the injuries the claimant would have received but for a defective product. The substance of an action, not the conclusory terms used by a party, determines whether an action is a products liability action.

I hope this information is helpful.
