Hello vanities, Honestly, I don't really take that as my priority when buying stuff sometimes. I just make sure that if it is expensive stuff, I will check the warranty card. Well, not a good habit instead but now, I always in a hurry even if it is just for groceries shopping! But, let me tell you this...in my office, almost all the stuff are from Japan (including pens and pencils...) and it is amazing when you see the label or the warning sign. Like the one on our main and the biggest printing machine - "Take a HANDLE of opening and closing of the cover. Will cause an injury on a hand or a finger" Well, doesn't matter - will only cause injury to A hand or A finger! Not a big deal, right?

Hi vanities! I don't think that I will be the only person to have this answer, but I think that the strangest label that I have ever seen are the ones on mattresses and pillow with the warning to not tear off under penalty of law! Now what federal government person is coming to your house to check to see if you have removed that tag from your mattress or pillow? I have never understood why that warning is there? Who cares if you tear off that tag? And why would the government care? It's your mattress or pillow so you bought it now why can't you tear off the damn tag?

A warning label found on a baby stroller cautions the user to “Remove child before folding"... A prescription of sleeping pills stating, “Warning: May cause drowsiness”... Ummm, isn't that the point? A 13-inch wheel on a wheelbarrow warns: “Not intended for highway use”... A warning on a pair of shin guards manufactured for bicyclists: “Shin pads cannot protect any part of the body they do not cover”...

A sunscreen for my cars front window....says...please remove from the window before operating the car.....like dah....you can't see out the windshield! LOL...or removing this tag is under penalty of the law. (on a pillow) I did it once and waited for the pillow police to come and arrest me but they never did! Still waiting!

I was going to buy one of those funky lightbulbs that have the decorations on them for my daughter one time and I was reading the lable. It said that this product may cause cancer or another fatal illness. I was like, wtf??? Then I was going to buy her a little lamp that was so cute and the label said that you had to wash your hands after turning it on cause it contained lead and that if you bit on the cord you could get cancer or something else from the chemicals in the cord. Again, wtf??? Who in the world would want to buy that kind of product? Needless to say, we don't own a lamp or any funky lightbulbs...
