A: That warning is what is called the California Proposition 65. There is a certain chemical in one of materials used to make this item that may be linked to cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.As part of the law, the state is required to publish a list of chemicals that are "known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity." The list is updated at least once a year and now contains about 800 different chemicals. The complete list can be found on the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) website.
