Stating the Obvious


Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch has revealed the results of its seventh annual Wacky Warning Label Contest. The top prize went to this warning on a bottle of drain cleaner: "If you do not understand, or cannot read, all directions, cautions and warnings, do not use this product." Second place went to this warning on a snow sled: "Beware: sled may develop high speed under certain snow conditions." Another award went to the package for a five-inch fishing hook which told buyers it was "Harmful if swallowed."
