Stupid product warnings

A toilet brush with a tag that says "Do not use for personal hygiene" has taken top prize for the wackiest consumer warning label of the year, according to an anti-lawsuit group.

The Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch, M-LAW, whose main mission is to reveal how lawsuits and anxiety over lawsuits have created a need for overly obvious warnings on products, sponsors the The Wacky Warning Label Contest each year.

Other top finishers this year include:

— A scooter with the warning "This product moves when used."

— A digital thermometer with the advice "Once used rectally, the thermometer should not be used orally."

— An electric blender used for chopping and dicing that reminds users to " "Never remove food or other items from the blades while the product is operating."

— And a three-inch bag of air used for packaging that read "Do not use this product as a toy, pillow, or flotation device."
