What types of labeling should products contain?

Virtually every consumer product released onto the market in the United States must be labeled. What that label must list varies by product.

What a manufacturer's duty to warn consumers entails

Manufacturers or suppliers are required to label all potentially dangerous or hazardous products in an effort to protect consumers from potentially becoming hurt when using them. If they fail to exercise their duty to warn consumers of the unintentional or intentional dangers that exist from the reasonable use of their products, then they may expose themselves to being sued if someone gets hurt by them.
