  • No Fault Liability
    • Callow v Tillstone (1990)
      • The vet assured him that it was okay eat, so he put it up for sale
      • However it was unfit for consumption, and the butcher was convicted for exposing unsound meat for sale
      • Because it was a strict liability offence the butcher was guilty, but the butcher was not at fault in any way
    • A defendant can be convicted if his voluntary act accidentally caused a prohibited consequence
      • Even if the defendant is completley blameless
