I just don't understand why it's illegal in the United States to put toys inside chocolate but everybody can own a gun.

ReportYea it's the same old "choking hazard" concern, I guess US legislators have been very strict about it.

Still, to my knowledge Germany is just as crazy in other matters, I mean all the insane worries and fears and the obsession of making everything politically correct. For example, I hear so many common video games have been banned in Germany! :/10 months agoLike! 3[6]

ReportThe USA has a lot of stupid rules and stupid warning labels everywhere. Most people should know not to swallow a fishing lure.10 months agoLike! 8[8]

Report@Brickkart, ROFL! :D
And most kids and parents should know that superhero capes/costumes don't enable actual flying and microwave ovens are not for drying wet pets.

I'm under the impression that the habit of making such warning labels in the US is largely due to many people filing crazy lawsuits (I'd say, in their lust for easy money!).10 months agoLike! 9[9]

ReportLike, a cat-owner dries his cat in an oven thus killing her and then demands millions of dollars from the oven manufacturer because the manual did not specify that putting animals in an oven harms them. The American law/court system is *oddly* allowing such stupid activity, for greedy people to make money on ludicrous excuses.

Anyway, the businesses/companies have then started to put all kinds of warnings and vast directions on their products and services just to avoid such lawsuits.10 months agoLike! 8[10]

ReportI greatly enjoyed all the stories about weird warnings in the US! The toilet brush just made me ROTFWL :-D!! You'd need to have a pretty big mouth to even attempt to insert it in your mouth... Surely rather than sue someone, you'd die of shame if you'd try to use a TOILET brush that way?! Any way, I really hope this will reach 10K and that those Kinder Surprise Eggs will be sold all over the world. We need LEGO! :-) Heleen10 months agoLike! 7[17]

ReportThe wise and powerful Wikipedia tells us:

The 1938 Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act contains a section highlighting that a confectionery product with a non-nutritive object, partially or totally imbedded within it, cannot be sold within the United States, unless the FDA issues a regulation that the non-nutritive object has functional value.[5] Essentially, the 1938 Act bans “the sale of any candy that has imbedded in it a toy or trinket.” [6]10 months agoLike! 0[34]
