Get Real-World Examples of Warnings and Labels Devised by Large and Small Companies. Find Out What You Can Learn From Them to Avoid Potential Lawsuits!

As a manufacturer, retailer or marketer, you might assume that you don't need to provide some types of information or warnings on product labels thinking it's a matter of simple common sense or it's obvious. Making that mistake could be fatal.

Many were surprised when McDonald's was found liable for its failure to appropriately warn consumers that hot coffee may burn a consumer if spilled. There is a lot we can learn from this episode and other examples of a manufacturer's or seller's labels/warnings or lack thereof?

Attend this session by legal expert Kristi A. Davidson to get real-world examples of warnings and labels devised by large and small companies. Get citations to legal standards and links to valuable legal resources. Kristi will also discuss the rules and regulations to which companies in the chain of distribution are bound and will provide a practical approach to devising product warnings and labels.

Through an examination of warnings and labels actually used by product manufacturers and sellers, participants will learn how to:

  • Identify potentially dangerous conditions;
