Defendant, proprietor of a hotel and dining room, served unwholesome food to the plaintiff who became ill as a result of its impurity. The plaintiff sued for the damages resulting from his illness, on the theory that there was an implied warranty that the food was fit for human consumption. Held, the serving of food for immediate consumption on the premises was not a "sale" within the Uniform Sales Act, and therefore there was no warranty attached under the terms of the Act, and there was no implied warranty of fitness of food so served at common law. Lynch v. Hotel Bond Co., (Conn. 1933) 167 Atl. 99.
