We were only delighted to get a free pair of sunglasses for my nine-year-old daughter when we got her a top from Abercrombie & Fitch [in California]. Then we see the warning written in black text on a black background so I’ll type it here for those who can’t make it out in the photo…
“This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm” What. The. Fupp.
If you Google it you can find a similar warning on Diet Coke cans in the 90s. May cause cancer.
From a quick Google: that warning is on practically everything in California, as they’re quite sue-happy. don’t eat the glasses.That warning label refers to a chemical (plastic related) in the sunglasses not the use of the sunglasses themselves. The warning label releases the manufacturer from liability. Everything plastic that we touch or use can leech chemicals into our bodies. It’s in everyone’s blood stream and pretty inevitable.
Plastic drinking bottles sound awesome
These signs are pretty much common sight in California. A hotel I was staying in California once had this up on the lobby wall beside the pool area. Not the most pleasant thing to see on check in.
Those warnings are everywhere in California including outside anywhere that sells alcohol.
I say don’t eat them, just to be on the safe side.
I have it on a watch, just don’t eat it
Proposition 65. It’s everywhere in Calfornia, even the happiest place in the world..
I hear San Francisco is banning the sale of all plastic bottles.
Thats American standards when it comes to mass production for ye. Imagine if we let their food production standards become normal in EU?
They don’t give a fupp about safety
I think it’s actually the opposite problem. They’re so concerned about avoiding liability that put safety warnings on absolutely anything to the point where they become meaningless. I’d imagine there’s absolutely nothing different about this and and a similar product made in Europe.
We need a warning for life.. Living : can cause cancer.
Life, can cause death..
Tis true, but life can also create life
Which will lead to death…. it’s inevitability*
*Said in Agent Smith voice.. Goodbye Mr.Junkface.
The crime issss life….. the sentence issss death.
Why would anyone buy their kids stuff from Abercrombie?? Its all shallow advertising stuff..
Yeah yank standards are lower than here in the EU. They still have asbestos as legal ffs..

What one wonders does the internet, cause or Google for that matter.
