Warning label

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
B pointed this out to me and we were cracking up at this warning label. Yesterday I bought a sleep mask to block out the night lights at night so I can sleep. The label says:

warning:For external use only. Avoid using sharp objects on mask. Keep out of reach from children.



I mean really, I want to know who did what to make that warning label get placed on the product.

I love reading warning labels, for that reason!!

well maybe you really DON'T want to know why that label was put on there.

My fav is on a bag of peanuts "warning - product may contain peanuts" - more or less for those with allergies to peanuts..........DUH

Or another "on a bag of airline pretzels - open bag, eat contents" or something close to that.....

I've seen some really stupid warning labels - even on food products - such as: Caution! Contents will be hot after taking out of oven or microwave!

Another one I've always wondered about are the "Do Not Remove" warning labels on mattresses or pillows. What difference does it make if you DO remove the label??

So much for child labor laws, huh?

Actually, I can see a reason for the warning. I have bad reactions to many OTC meds, so I take kid's cold meds; I wonder if other adults do the same thing (or, perhaps, they do because they're desperate, don't want to got out, and they had their kids's meds available)?

I think those are really for the merchants selling them. It's illegal to sell matresses and some pillows 2nd-hand in many states (this applies to stores that stock them as a business, not the thrift store, for example, though I've had those tell me they no longer accept those items, as it's illegal for them to sell them used).

I also like reading product labels that are in foreign languages, to see if they really are speaking that language, and not just making it up (they do make up some stuff).

Or are they just trying to cover every base.

DH explained the plunger/power lines thing cause I wondered about that too. He says that some people could use the plunger in the sump pump and damage the wires/lines leading to the power lines. Then you have exposed electric lines which could cause a problem.
