Kmart is mocked for selling koala-shaped sanitiser with a bogus warning

Kmart is being mocked by shoppers for selling a koala-shaped hand sanitiser bottle with a warning sign written in another language. 

An eagle-eyed customer spotted the error on the back of the label after buying the $4 Silicone Travel Bottle on Sunday. 

The warning, which appears to be written in Latin, read: ‘Warning: Lorem ipsum dolor sit, amet, dvmk consectetur, adipisci velit, adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod, ckfk tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna sdk aliqua. Ut enim ad minim venim, quis nostrud’.

The shopper sparked outrage an amusement after posting an image of the packet to Reddit

‘Thanks for the warning Kmart. It was very helpful,’ the customer captioned the image. 

‘Really world-class quality control… mind you it is Kmart,’ one person wrote. 

‘I’m pretty sure if you read that you summon a demon,’ another wrote.

‘What in the Harry Potter spell book is this,’ another wrote.

And while many users believed the warning to be written in Latin, they were left scratching their heads when Google failed to translate the text. 

The message was actually not written in any language, it is place holder text commonly used by designers.

‘Its ”words” loosely approximate the frequency with which letters occur in English, which is why at a glance it looks pretty real,’ one designer explained. 

Lorem ipsum text have was used first in type-setting in the 1960s and is still used in digital design templates today.
