Default Arrma cancer warning

WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects (or other reproductive harm). Exposure through skin contact and ingestion may occur.

Curious to know if anybody has noticed this on the tower hobbies site, may be on others too but haven't looked. Anyone know anything more about the warning. It only states California so not sure if it is restricted to this state or others too. Never seen this before.

It's on just about everything. Don't worry about it unless you are planning to eat or inhale it.

Damn, because I was looking for something to go with my steak. I guess just about everything gives you cancer these days. A more appropriate warning should state that "Buying rc products will cause severe addiction and empty your bank account in no time"

I'm working on a coffe flavor to simulate the smell of traction compound , look for it soon at local supermarket shelves. "Track-o-Java" - read the warning label on backside please.

Testosterone is on the CA Prop 65 list. So in other words, men, or masculine women should have a prop 65 warning on them.
