Fear of Lawsuits Makes People do Crazy Things…

It’s Fun to Know: Wacky Warning Labels

By Suzanne Richardson

The fear of lawsuits can make people do crazy things. That includes putting ridiculous warning labels on their products.

Case in point: I bought a package of pre-cut celery at the grocery store. The label said something like “Pre-Cut, Pre-Washed Celery.” Underneath, in smaller letters, it read: “Caution: May contain celery.” I kid you not. (Sorry I didn’t think to take a picture.)

The Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch keeps an eye out for crazy labels like this in its annual Wacky Warning Label Contest. This year – the contest’s 11th – the winning label (found on a small tractor) read “Danger: Avoid Death.”
