how long are the sections in question?

If the warnings are about 1-3 lines at most, then I would ask
whether using a dark red background and a light (white) font
color would be an alternative. Given enough contrast, such a
reverse color assignment can be easy to read.

If the warnings tend to be longer, this would dominate the
page layout too much, so that then the red border would be
my favourite as well.
