The show is broadcast in the UK on TV channel CBeebies and is available on iPlayer however it is not produced by the BBC and can be watched on other sites.
Soon after sharing the amusing tweet, the BBC Press Office account replied: ‘We love #Bing too, but we don’t make it – and doesn’t look like @BBCiPlayer to us.’
Rachel’s fans also enjoyed the unexpected drug warning, with many joking that perhaps it was for the parents watching with their youngsters.
One person wrote: ‘It’s not a warning, it’s a recommendation to any parents who have to sit through it.’

And another joked: ‘It’ll be all the caffeine that Flop has to consume daily just to keep going while dealing with Bing’s s***e’.
While someone else wittily penned: ‘I think it’s for the episode where they go to Edinburgh: Trainspot-Bing……..’
Bing is a children’s show which tells stories about an animated bunny called Bing as well as their pals, including Flop, Sula and Panda. Bing’s little cousin is Charlie.
The bunny was voiced by Mark Rylance in season one but David Threlfall took over in series two. Other stars to have voice parts include Bryony Hannah and Tamsin Grieg.

‘It’s not a warning, it’s a recommendation!’: Several of Rachel’s followers joked that the warning was actually aimed at parents sitting through Bing with their children
Bing is rated U – or Universal – meaning it is suitable for everyone over four. It is aimed at children aged between two and six.
Rachel’s tweet comes after she struggled to contain her laughter when she saw a rude word on the Countdown board last Wednesday.
The TV host was left red-faced when a guest spelled out ‘c****ed’ on the board and asked the team: ‘Can you have c****ed?’
However, the exact same word accidentally cropped up for former host Carol Vorderman 22 years ago – she starred on the show from 1982 until 2008.
In 1999, viewers were left stunned after contestant Dennis Raishbrook spelled out ‘c*****d’ on the board in an unfortunate word blunder, leaving the studio in giggles.

During the latest crude episode, Susie Dent explained the word was acceptable, saying: ‘Yes, c*****d, also to c**p out of a game of c**ps, gambling game, is to make a losing throw, absolutely fine.’
Rachel could be seen smirking as she looked at the board before getting on with the rest of the show.
The presenter looked sensational for the show, showing off her growing baby bump in a blue midi dress with a zigzag striped print.
Wednesday’s show was far from the only time a rude word has found its way onto the Countdown board. In December, Rachel was left embarrassed after she spelled out the words ‘foreskin’ and ‘stonker’.
