    Spanish instructions being printed on packaging
    Wondering! Why did companys start printing spanish instructions on their packaging? Was it up to company? Did our government mandate it? How did it become common practice? Where/Why How did it begin?

    As I see it, spanish is a language used in the US for a long time, so they are trying to make package instructions bilingual. Same in Canada, there is french on our packages as well. French and english are common languages in Canada.
