2014 Wacky Warning Labels Contest Winners!

The finalists have been selected, and they’re wackier than ever.  The Wacky Warning Labels™ Contest, which reaches tens of millions of Americans each year, entertains and alarms the nation about the lawsuit-happy culture and the lengths to which companies must go to avoid lawsuits.

 

On July 24, 2014, cash prizes of $1,000 for the grand prize, $500 for the second place prize and $250 for the third place prize were announced during John Stossel’s show on Fox Business Network. 

 

The Stossel Show studio audience selected the label on the cell phone battery booster submitted by Larry Klein of Costa Mesa, California as the grand prize winner.  Second place went to Mark Lengel of Novi, Michigan for the label he found on a football helmet. The third place winner was Tim Weibel of Grand Island, New York for the label he found on a sheet of decals.  Click to watch the video
