Silly Saturday - Dumb Warning Labels - February 23, 2013

Have you ever seen a warning label on a product that really is stupid? Why is it that the manufacturer has to put such dribble on their product?  Probably because someone has actually done it.

Here are just a few of some dumb warning labels.

Dremel Electric Rotary Tool
This product not intended for use as a dental drill.

Baby Oil
Keep out of reach of children

Hair Coloring
Do not use as an ice cream topping.

These ear plugs are nontoxic, but may interfere with breathing if caught in windpipe

Warning: Do not attempt to swallow

Caution: Contents may catch fire.

RCA Television Remote Control
Not Dishwasher Safe

Hair Dryer
Warning: Do not use while sleeping.

Do not attempt to stop chain with hands.

Tesco's Tiramisu dessert:
(printed on bottom of the box)
Do not turn upside down.

Bag of Fritos:
You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.

Disposable razor
Do not use during an earthquake

Not to be used as protection from a tornado

Sign at a railroad station
Beware! To touch these wires is instant death.
Anyone found doing so will be prosecuted.

Manual for an SGI computer.
Do not dangle the mouse by its cable or throw the mouse at co-workers.

Furniture Wipes
Do not use for a baby wipe.


  1. Holy Cow! I can not believe some of these. Who comes up with this stuff?!Good for a giggle though. ;-)

  2. HA! Those are a riot! I think some of these commercials really insult our intelligence too don't you think? That dead end one by the cemetery reminds me of that old kid joke we use to tell when we were kids. Why is there a fence around a cemetery? Because people are just dying to get in. How many people are in the cemetery? None, they're all dead!

  3. Those are hilarious! I recently bought some Walgreens brand swiffer pads and it had the warning "Harmful if swallowed." Really?

  4. I laughed out loud at too many of these! Maybe I haven't been paying close attention, but I haven't seen these types of warnings on products for some years. I guess it's just better to state the obvious than get involved in a lawsuit no matter how ridiculous it is.


I love to read your comments!
