ADOPTED: The Alcoholic Beverage Labelling Act was enacted in 1988. It requires all alcoholic drinks to bear the safety warning: ‘GOVERNMENT WARNING: According to the Surgeon General, women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects. Consumption of alcoholic beverages impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems’. The warning message must be easily readable, on a contrasting background, separate from all other information. The font must be of a minimum size proportionate to the size of the container.
