“Warning! Contents under pressure. Cap may blow off causing eye or other serious injuries. Point away from face and people, especially while opening.” Now you are probably thinking “why does this sound familiar?” Well if you have paid close enough attention to that sugar-filled carbonated syrup bottle, you’d recognize the warning of one of the many dangers of what you are about to drink and it just so happens that this week on The Malliard Report, Jim has the creator of that label.
This week on The Malliard Report Jim welcomes Dr. Gerald Goldhaber to the show.” …Dr. Gerald M. Goldhaber has emerged as the nation’s leading safety warnings and communication expert. He is the publisher of the Goldhaber Warnings Report. His clients have included over 100 of the top 500 corporations in the U.S. Fifty of the top 100 law firms and government agencies, including the FDA (for whom he consulted on a new nutritional label). Goldhaber’s clients have also included the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to establish guidelines for products ranging from All Terrain Vehicles (ATV’s) to soda bottles to in-line skates, the USDA for whom he has consulted about potential warnings for sugary products.
