|2034 - Silly lawyerbane|
Above the nutritional information panel on the side of the Silk Nog (soy-based "eggnog", sort of):
NOT TO BE USED AS INFANT FORMULA
(OR INFANT NOG)
Good grief. Who'd use egg nog as infant formula in the first place?! The lawyers strike again.
current mood: amused
If egg nog's made from eggs, I'm pretty sure I don't want me any infant nog.
Well... I can guess how it came about... some idgit decided because it was like eggnog - which if made with whole MILK and eggs, by it's nature, would be high in protein... they would use it for a baby- and of course the poor little thing couldn't hold enough of it to get the nutrition it needed... it only takes one idget to litigate for a whole village...
"Infant nog"?! Yecch! Sounds cannibalistic to me. (If you make egg nog with eggs...)
I'm waiting for the first suit that argues that since so many people are functionally illiterate, manufacturers are negligent for not including a video explaining how to use their produts.
sometimes mr yuck stickers just arent enough.
I'm not sure what it is, but it sure sounds like it would lead to a felony conviction.
1) what the crap is 'infant nog'?? google doesn't even know!
2) the fact that there is indeed a warning makes me think that enough people have actually done this to warrent putting the label on there.
