"May cause drowsiness," is the obvious but funny warning label on the sleep aid, Nytol, states Forbes. The warning for a Vidal Sassoon hair dryer advises users, "Do not use while sleeping." The typical owner of a Razor scooter registers no surprise to find that the "product moves when used."
Manufacturers may go to unusual lengths to prevent injuries or harm to consumers, Forbes explains. The profusion of ludicrous lawsuits requires manufacturers to be proactive in attempting to foresee potential risks and provide adequate warnings or instructions, however ridiculous, for their products. The label on a small New Holland Tractor features a brief, laughable warning instructing users to "Avoid Death."
