Wacky Warning Label Contest Winners
The winner of the 15th annual Wacky Warning Labels Contest, sponsored by the Center for America, have been announced, which highlight absurd, self-obvious labels that manufacturers think are necessary in our litigious society. The winners are:
• Grand Prize -- "These globes should not be referred to for navigation." -- from a 7-inch decorative globe
• 2nd Prize - "Never use while sleeping." - from an electric razor for men
• And 3rd Prize - "Keep product away from infants and children." - from a neck pillow marketed for children
Do you think manufacturers are going way overboard with these warnings, or do you think they are really necessitated by our litigious society? Have you ever seen a warning label that was so absurd that it stuck in your mind? If so, what was it?
