A sign with an unintended effect

sign reading "CAUTION / MAY EFFECT (sic) / HEART PACEMAKERS"This sign appears above a microwave in a cafeteria that serves many of the better-educated people in Natrona Heights. I imagine that it hurts their eyes to look at it.

There is a good usage note on AFFECT and EFFECT here.
