I'd call that a dangerously defective warning statement, since it is in a language that the kids can't read. ...
It's not a warning label. It's instructions on how to open the wrapper for those times when you have a brain fart and forget how to open it.

Re: Warning!!!!!!

what is funny (in a sad way) I once worked a bar mitzvah where the man of the hour had to be rushed to the emergency room due to a magnet problem. they had these rubbery balls with an LED in them. Powered by a single button battery. turns out you can remove them from the ball and there is a small magnet on the end you can either remove or use to stick to something else.

Well, he had one on each nostril and when he pulled them off, the magnets jumped together with only the septum of his nose holding them apart and too far up to reach.

kind of put a damper on the party

Try reading the warnings that come with a Shower Massage.

Re: Warning!!!!!!

That is a typical US thing...
Here in europe we do not have such warning labels on everything because our laws are different...
If you hurt yourself by sheer stupidness, it is your fault and not the fault of the producer... So you cannot sue them for sometimes ridiculous amounts of money...

Perhaps it needs IKEAesque pictographic instructions

True, Engrish can be confusing at times.
