Misuse of a product means a use which the defendant could not reasonably foresee. The mere fact that the defendant may not intend the product to be used in a certain way does not mean that using it in that way is a legal misuse of the product. If the defendant should reasonably foresee that the product may be used in a way other than intended by him, such other use is not a misuse.
