    If someone where to buy a product from a supermarket which caused an allergy or some other sort of severe medical condition which required hospitalisation and sick leave I'm guessing the supermarket would be liable for more than just a refund but I don't think it gives specific measures under the SGA? This is of course if they hadn't given an accurate description of the product (saying something doesn't contain nuts if it does)

    My question is are there any specific remedies for a situation like this or would it be down to a judges discretion?

    Another question is what part of the act says that you can only trust the knowledge of someone who should reasonably be expected to have product knowledge?
