Market research indicates that Deathbed (TM) brand anti-roach biscuits are often mistaken for treats by household pets and children.

Gentle Hands (TM) Brand Scrotum Message Cradle
Units sold in the United Kingdom may be packaged with the wrong model power converter for international use. Use of an improper power converter can cause the cradle to operate at increased rates of speed and exert overwhelming force. In addition, page 43 of the manual contains errata. The phrase "raise the cradle to your scrotum and begin operation" should instead read "carefully lower your scrotum into the cradle. Always place the cradle on a dry, steady, solid surface."
