The manufacturers are avoiding any suits (sp?) from misuse of product.

Men PMS, too - they just don't admit it.

That's just a standard legal warning, like the one on birth control pills: "Do not take, if pregnant". It was written by a lawyer, not a medical or pharmaceutical professional.

Or do not use when in the bathtub. Most manufacturers cover their backside in every way possible with warnings, especially with medicines.

Sadly, I'm sure that some of these warnings are reactive rather than proactive.

Yes, sadly...you know the warnings came about for a reason.....someone actually TRIED it first.
post #14 of 14
Haha.. .there are actually people who DO find ways around stuff like that....

for example... a man and his wife bought an RV to go camping with... well.... the RV contained a GPS map thing (so you can plan your trip and track your progress) and also cruise control. The man set cruise control on, and turned on the mapping showing where he had to go. Satisfied, he leaned back and went to sleep. Moments later the RV went off the road and crashed. Both people were unharmed, but the Man surprisingly sued the company for damages to the RV. He aruged that the manual did not say the cruise control or the GPS or both combined would NOT get him to his destination by themselves, so the fault was not his. And I believe he ended up winning the court battle and was payed quite a hefty sum.

The story might not be as exact as the one I heard because it was a while ago... but there are some sneaky ways people can get around and do stuff like this. This was on an internet site my mom's boyfriend found a while ago.. he just printed this and some others out though so I dont know the addy.

Edit: Haha.. this one on that labels site is really funny.. Warning: Do not climb inside this bag and zip it up. Doing so will cause injury and death." -- A label inside a protective bag (for fragile objects), which measures 15cm by 15cm by 12cm.

"Beware! To touch these wires is instant death. Anyone found doing so will be prosecuted." -- On a sign at a railroad station

"Warning! This is not underwear! Do not attempt to put in pants." -- On the packaging for a wristwatch.
