The county of Ontario, New York, ordered twenty-three cell doors for the new wing of the Ontario County Jail. The vice president of the company that was to manufacture the doors told the jail superintendent that he knew exactly how the cells should be constructed; the jail superintendent relied on the vice president’s statement. When the cell doors were delivered, the bars were so far apart that prisoners could wriggle through them. Instead of the standard 5 inches, the bars were 5 ¾ inches apart. What warranty has been breached? What is the basis for this breach of warranty?
