Stupid Warning Labels

In 1997, Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch (M-LAW) began a contest to expose how frivolous lawsuits, and a concern about potential frivolous lawsuits, have led to a new cultural phenomenon: the wacky warning label. Over the years, M-LAW has received hundreds of warning labels from people around the world. M-LAW verifies the authenticity of each label and selects the "Top 5" for each year. Here is a list of some of the best labels from the first five contests:

* - A warning on an electric router made for carpenters cautions: "This product not intended for use as a dental drill."

* - A warning label found on a baby stroller cautions the user to "Remove child before folding"

* - A prescription of sleeping pills says, "Warning: May cause drowsiness."

* - A sticker on a toilet at a public facility in Ann Arbor actually warns: "Recycled flush water unsafe for drinking."

* - A massage chair warns: "DO NOT use massage chair without clothing."

* - A snowblower warns: "Do not use snowthrower on roof."

* - A dishwasher carries this warning: "Do not allow children to play in the dishwasher."

* - A CD player carries this unusual warning: "Do not use the Ultradisc2000 as a projectile in a catapult."

* - An "Aim-n-Flame" fireplace lighter cautions, "Do not use near fire, flame or sparks"

* - A label on a hand-held massager advises consumers not to use "while sleeping or unconscious"

* - A container of underarm deodorant says, "Caution: Do not spray in eyes"

* - A cartridge for a laser printer warns, "Do not eat toner"

* - A household iron warns users: "Never iron clothes while they are being worn" * - A label with a hair dryer reads, "Never use hair dryer while sleeping"

* - A 13-inch wheel on a wheelbarrow warns: "Not intended for highway use"

* - A cardboard car sunshield that keeps sun off the dashboard warns, "Do not drive with sunshield in place"

* - A Bathroom Heater says: "This product is not to be used in bathrooms"

* - A can of self-defense pepper spray warns users: "May irritate eyes"
