This research shows the evolution of consumer rights with regards to new risks that are threatening him. In fact, the sale conditions, especially those related to the guarantee of hidden defects, are no longer able to provide adequate protection to the consumer. In recent years, new legislations have been introduced to recognize consumer rights as the weakest party in the contract of consumption. Modern laws assign to the seller several obligations, including the obligation to inform the consumer of potential risks and to ensure its safety against the damage caused by the products. By extrapolating modern consumer laws, it can be argued that it recognizes the right of the consumer to obtain a secure product, either through the prevention of known or potential risks of the products, or through the compensation of potential damages that can affect the consumer.
