I was plugging in this lamp I have, and I noticed this little tag on the cord that says something along the lines of “Warning, this cord contains some materials and/or chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and other serious health defects”. Well, like the paranoid person I am, I washed my hands about a million times…
My questions are:
- What exactly does this all mean? I’m a little foggy on the vague-ness of the whole warning.
- Why won’t they tell me what chemicals exactly are hazardous?
- What’s with the “California” thing? Do they mean scientists who live/study in CA found this out?
Thanks in advance.
