The Foundation for Fair Civil Justice, a tort-reform group, recently announced the winners of its 12th annual "Wacky Warning Label" contest.
This year's winning label was attached to a product called "The Off-Road Commode," a toilet seat that is designed to attach to the trailer hitch of a truck. The warning label reads "Not for use on moving vehicles".Among the runners-up:
- An information booklet that reads, "Do not use if you cannot see clearly to read the information in the information booklet";
- The warning, "Always use this product with adult supervision," a label that appears on the underside of a cereal bowl; and
- A warning provided with a 1" by 4" LCD panel, reading, "Do not eat the LCD panel."
- A bag of livestock castration rings warns, “For animal use only.”
