One of the tags in the nightgown that I bought from X says:

Notice: Certain products can burn if exposed to heat or flame. Fabrics with a fuzzy surface or open weave are more easily ignited. Use caution near open flames, candles, cigarettes, kitchen ranges, fireplaces or other sources of intense heat, particularly if fabric softeners are used on this product.

Why is this notice here? The lawyerly touch is obvious but is this government regulation or the result of a lawsuit? If the drafter of this notice is reading this blog, may I suggest an opening sentence a la the plastic bag warning-“This nightgown is intended for sleep. Do not cook or smoke in this nightgown”
