The warnings are all essentially the same thing: you’ve used the same
colour for your page background (that’s ‘body’ in this context) and
for different item styles.

This IS actually a risky thing to do in SEO terms as it could be
interpreted as trying to trick the search engine spider into finding
text that’s hidden from human visitors by being the same colour as
the page. I suspect that it isn’t hard for the spiders to see that
the object background is a different colour, but in your place I
would still consider rethinking this particular colour scheme as far
as those styles are concerned. Just in case. It can be pretty
difficult to come back from being blacklisted by Google.
