fix a flat voids warranty of tires?!?!?

Has anyone heard of this??! I was just at the local sams club and they said that tire manufacturers will void the warranty if any fix a flat was ever used. So what's Mercedes stand on this when the amgs are not giving spares, but only a bottle of the green slim? knowing that if we use it, we void the warranty of the tires?!?!?
In fact I didn't believe this and I called Michelin on this. Their operator did confirm that this is true. If any fix a flat was ever used, your 60,000 miles warranty has been voided.

For the tires

Lets say you have half the tread left on the tires and the tire got a rip in the side wall and can't be repaired. They are not going to credit you for half the original cost of your tire if you used fix a flat. Even when you have road hazard warranty!
