Not suitable for children...

From Column 8 today, we get a health warning on Easter bunnies:

Mary McMurtrie, of Berowra, writes that she "has just noticed on a chocolate Easter bunny a warning label which reads 'Not suitable for children 5 years or younger - small parts may be swallowed'. Well, what else are you meant to do with chocolate?"

Readers may have noticed that litigation-wary manufacturers now routinely stick these warnings on just about every product imaginable. If it has been imported, you can bet your last shirt that it will will carry a sticker "Not suitable for children under 3 years," and it doesn't much matter what the product is - babies' dummies included.

I think the sticker must have been put there by chocaholic parents :-)
