Welcome: The Food Might Kill You

While in sunny Anaheim this past weekend, I dined at Ruth’s Chris Steak House (the seared tuna was out of this world). On the wall right by the Maitre d’s desk was this utterly useless warning sign:
Chemicals Known to the State of California to Cause Cancer, or Birth Defects or Other Reproductive Harm May be Present in the Foods or Beverages Sold or Served Here
Ridiculous, no? Which chemicals? In which foods? Huh? The sign reads more like a parody than it does like an actual attempt to inform consumers.

I realize this warning is posted because of some regulatory requirement, but it seems ethically dodgy to me to simply post such a warning without telling your customers what the hell it really means.
