2010 Wacky Warning Labels Finalists

From Walter Olson comes word that Bob Dorigo Jones has announced the five finalists in the 2010 Wacky Warning Labels Contest.   From Jones, the finalists include: 

  • Never operate your speakerphone while driving," warns a label on a product called "Drive 'N' Talk."
  • A motorized go-cart helpfully warns consumers that "this product moves when used."
  • A bottle of swine growth supplement called "Piglet Blast" cautions, "For animal use only."
  • The Bluetooth headset alerts its users that "use of a headset that covers both ears will impair your ability to hear other sounds."
  • And a pair of swim goggles alerts users to the risk of pulling them away from the face, lest they "spring back and cause injury."
  • If you wish to use these in class, you can download pictures of the products here.
