Spanish term or phrase: level
This is a transcript from an interview about smoking (and advertising). The relevant text reads:

"Son anuncios que pueden poner donde quieran. Entonces, aquí hay un anuncio que dice: "[marca]". "Check the levels." Abajo hay un level que dice "Surgeon General Warning: Smoking causes lungs cancer."

Is it possible that the person transcribing the tape misheard "level(s)", when it should have been "label(s)"?

Thanks for your input!

I'd say it's very possible. :-)

...especially considering the difficulty that many (less proficient) native-speaker of Spanish have in distinguishing between the English (phonemes) \"b\" and \"v\" :-)

Excuse me: that\'s \"speakers\" :-)
