Excessive Use Warning

What kind of lawsuit are they worried about?

The warning on the back of the package of Halls Defense cough drops I just purchased says the following:

[…] take one drop 4 times per day.  WARNINGS: Do not use for more than 8 weeks consecutively.

I’m guessing the warning is because, after 8 weeks of four of these days a day, you probably have type-2 diabetes.  The first two ingredients in these things are sugar and glucose syrup.  Aside from that, if you’ve had a cold for 8 weeks and are still seeking a solution in cough drops, you have other more pressing health concerns.
