Good one. This is what you call the Legal Statements. Almost every mfgr would say something like this for legal reasons. About a year or two ago there were posts about AMD didn't recommeded their chips to be used in Medical equipments. No one can stop anyone from using it in the medical Equipments. But if anything would to happen to the patient/equipment because of the AMD Chip AMD wouldn't get blamed.

There are so many stupid statements like these on toys.
