Episode 51: You won’t believe these wacky labels!

FS_SlipperyWhenWet09

The number of industrial labels that manufacturers have to put on their products seems to be increasing as each year passes. Some are very necessary for the safety and management of the product whereas others just seem utterly pointless. We 100% support labelling products to provide details about what they’re about and safety reasons, but sometimes these reasons go too far. We discuss wacky labels manufacturers are forced to put on their products to protect themselves from frivolous lawsuits, and some of the lawsuits that drive prices up and job creation down.

Special guest Bob Dorigo Jones serves as Senior Fellow for the Center for America, is the author of the bestselling Remove Child Before Folding, The 101 Stupidest, Silliest and Wackiest Warning Labels Ever. He is the host of a new national radio commentary, “Let’s Be Fair,” through which he shares important stories about the impact of crazy lawsuits and a litigation-happy culture on our communities and families. Bob has overseen high-profile programs calling attention to the absurdity of lawsuit abuse, including the internationally profiled annual Wacky Warning Labels Contest. Bob has appeared on dozens of national and international TV and radio programs, including NBC Nightly News, ABC News’ 20/20, BBC WorldNews, FOX News, and CNBC.
