'Elf 'n safety.......not

Despite working in 144 even I had to resort to a powerful magnifier to read text so small that it wouldn't shame a secret agent - what could be so dangerous that it needed all this? I had to know............so I worked my way along to the bit helpfully tagged 'UK'.......
mayhap UK stands for Ukraine?

I hope it translates as 'reading this could damage your eyesight'

:cry: :roll:

EPILOGUE;

After much further forensic searching I found it under 'EN' (ENglish - geddit?) apparently and entirely predictably you shouldn't drink it, inhale it, or rub it in your eyes
