The law of Louisiana imposes on the seller of the obligation of warranting the thing sold against its hidden defects, which are those which could not be discovered by simple inspection, and the purchaser may retain the thing sold and have an action for reduction of the price by reason of the difference in value between the thing as warranted and as it was in fact.
