I agree that the milk cartons are dangerous.
I had one that I was using for a step stool. This carton had a weakened step area (bottom) and once I stepped on it, my foot went right through it and there I stood with the bear trap grip around my ankle. HURT! To say the least and worst part I was all alone in the shop. Had to walk to the tool chest with this big plastic cuff. Took some time but was able to remove after cutting with sheet metal cutters. Never again have I used these cartons to step on, just carry stuff.
