What are some of the silliest product warning sayings you have heard or could suggest?

Pretty much every product in your house says "Potentially harmful if swallowed. Contact a physician or a poison center immediately if ingested" or some similar variation. It's stupid because it says exactly that whether it is virtually harmless (diaper rash cream) or extremely deadly (antifreeze). If I was in charge, there'd be 3 different warning labels:

1. "This stuff is really pretty harmless. Unless a large amount is ingested, it's not likely to be an issue. If swallowed, and you are worried about it, call the poison center." This would be for stuff like lotion, silica gel, etc.

2. "This stuff could be harmful if swallowed or otherwise used inappropriately. If swallowed, please call the poison center." For stuff like cleaning agents, etc.

3. "This **** will kill you dead. Use extreme caution with use and do not leave it anywhere near children or pets. If swallowed, call your poison center immediately." For stuff like antifreeze, carb cleaner, rust removers with hydrofluoric acid, etc.

antifreeze would have to be large quantity to kill you. the old timers way to figure out a leak was to taste it. if it was sweet it was antifreeze. still a lot of old time mechanics alive to tell the tale.

LOL.....the old sniff/taste test was still being used by the old time detectives to test cocaine in 87 when I came on. It changed to test kits by the late 80's, early 90's!

I wouldn't say a large quantity is necessary to be fatal, but a taste will definitely not kill you. For a toddler, a teaspoon or more can be enough to cause serious toxicity without treatment

That's the way my father taught me...... I was scared to death. He was helping me fix my first car (1979 vinyl top Mustang)

I was certain I was going to drop dead right on the spot. I prefer the sniff test over the finger dab on your tounge test now.

I think a child taking a large gulp would be EXTREMELY dangerous though. Same for pets and wild animals.
