    Cheese label: Warning, contains milk.

    Really?!

    Actually, lucozade is not a bad option for anyone who's really dehydrated and can only get to the corner shop. They don't want people thinking it's suitable as an oral rehydration solution as it's a medical use, therefore has legal ramifications but it will keep you going much better than water if you're ill. I personally just had a vomiting bug, and aside from dioralyte, Powerade got me through!

    There are loads of these. I once got bored at work so typed "stupid labels" into the google machine. My fave(s) is this is true are

    I think it's because there is approved standard text. It's easier to just slap on the approved standard text than make up something and then get the lawyers to check it.

    So rather than stick a label on the packet of nuts saying "this product definitely contains nuts" they just use the boilerplate "may contain nuts".

    I used to have a pair of underpants that had the same warning.

    I said this to my mum yesterday. We had some green beans from Morissons which had been hand cut for extra tenderness and taste. Hmmm I'm pretty sure cutting them by hand has NO benefit over cutting them with a machine.

    Re: ridiculous labels on foods

    The thing that always makes me laugh is this as seen on a packet of fags

    "WARNING SMOKING SERIOUSLY DAMAGES HEALTH"

    Rolls me up every time I see it, not that I smoke, I mean with a warning as big as that you'd think people would stop.

    came across one on a pack of paracetemol - side effects: may cause headaches.
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.
