US Cigarette makers ordered to add woarning to packagingU.S. cigarette manufacturers must begin posting warnings next month about the dangers of smoking on websites and product packaging, a federal court said.

The U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., ruled Tuesday cigarette makers must place "corrective statements" on their sites beginning June 18 -- and on cigarette packs for two weeks at a time, for a total of twelve weeks over the next two years.

The labels address the dangers of smoking -- and include a statement that cigarettes are deliberately designed to create and sustain addiction.

As a result of a previous court order, the statements are also running on television five days a week on prime-time network television.
