Surely it can't just be me?

Have a look at this pasta sauce lid. Tell me if you notice anything a little ‘odd’ about it.

Latina Pasta Sauce lid

Not obvious yet?

Ok… have a look at the wording two lines under the ‘Fresh Sauce’ bit. See it now?

I’ll write it out so it’s clearer…

CAUTION: CONTAINER BECOMES HOT WHEN HEATED. HANDLE WITH CARE

Maybe it’s just me but that makes absolutely *no* sense to me whatever. I’m all for product warnings in places where inadvertent and/or unexpected damage or trauma may be caused by something but I just can’t imagine a situation where anyone would expect to heat something and *not* expect it to get hot?? Otherwise why on earth would they be heating it?

Am I that far off line that I’m the only one who thinks this is bizarre??
