Maybe a year or 2 ago I started seeing warnings like these WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including one or more listed chemicals which are known to the State of California to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov This was on a USB spliter that like most things are made in China. So what is the real deal here? Are they now using new chemicals or have they found out that the old one are more dangerous? I don't think its just because California is just way to cautious. Once someone said things like Lead and Asbestos were bad for you and look how long it took for that to get regulated.
