Confusing warningJuly 23, 2012
Here’s a warning I saw the other day (click the image to see it full size if it’s unclear):
But what does it mean? The first part is simple and clear enough, but what’s the ‘(For Australia and New Zealand only)’ bit all about?
Does it mean that only young children and infirm persons in Australia/NZ can’t use this sewing machine without supervision, but they can if they don’t live in Australia/NZ? or if they aren’t operating the machine in Australia/NZ?
My guess is that there’s some sort of regulatory compliance thing happening here, where the Australian and New Zealand authorities require specific wording in a warning for certain products.
But it’s not clear.
