Imagine my surprise when I went to purchase a lamp from the online Disney store and found this:

Quote
WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, or birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Does anyone have any idea what this the heck they are talking about? My wife called them and tried to get details, but all they would say is it is a result of the Erin Brockovich case and they are required by law to post the warning.  :?

All I can think of is chromium, but that was in the drinking water...

Its probably a chemical in the plastic. We use a molding plastic at work that has those labels.

The Christmas lights I purchased to put up at work said the same thing. I think it is the plastic of some sort.

Umm... yah... that must be it...  :wink:

I'm assuming this is more of a 'CYA' type warning than anything anyone needs to seriously worry about.

I took a yoga class and had to go out and buy a yoga mat.  The mat had that *exact* same warning in it.  Here's a product I was going to be lying on for a significant amount of time.

My husband insisted I thoroughly shower every week after class. slywink

Turns out lead is at least one of the correct answers. I just picked up a new ear bud for my cell and yet another warning was found on it:

Quote
WARNING: Handling the cord on this product will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects and other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.

Excuse me, I need to go... wash my hands.  :roll:
