A warning label is a label attached to an item, or contained in an item's instruction manual, warning the user about risks associated with the use of the item as intended by the manufacturer or seller. Most of them are intended to limit civil liability in lawsuits against the item's manufacturer or seller. That sometimes results in labels which for some people seem to state the obvious.
Warning labels have been produced for different items. In some cases these labels warn against some very strange occurrences such as the microwave that states 'do not dry pets in microwave'.
Some companies hold 'strange warning label competitions' such as the M-law wacky warning labels competition. T
