  1. Important charateristics of warning displays on alcohol containers.

    Article - En anglais

    Four studies examined the federally mandated warning on alcohol containers, which is required by law to be « located in a conspicuous and prominent place. » In all four studies few of the drinkers could recall the main parts of the warnings, even though the warning had been required on all alcohol containers for over two years.

    In Study 1, 44 adults looked at the warning on various beer containers and 77% thought that the warning was not conspicuous but could be made conspicuous through various changes, such as by printing the warning horizontally (parallel to the brand name) rather than vertically.

    In Study 2, 50 adults looked at the warning placed horizontally on one beer can and vertically on a similar can and rated the horizontal warning significantly more conspicuous.
