Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bachmann Trains Road Crossing (Toy)
On the back of this product it states that it has a chemical in it known to the state of California to cause cancer. I wouldn't have purchased it if I had know this. It cost half the price of the product to ship it back to Amazon so it was hardly worth it.

Made me giggle a bit :-)

Doesn't everything have "known to the state of California to cause cancer" sticker? The California regulation that requires that disclaimer is so broad, that the disclaimers are completely meaningless. Many buildings I lived in have the same disclaimer. Even though they are perfectly safe.

I wouldn't be surprised if you actually had to grind this thing into fine powder and then inject it directly into your bloodstream to have any chance of getting cancer from it. Though, in California some people might actually do it, hence the law and disclaimers ;-)

Actually, I do have small children. However, they are not big on chewing plastic :-). They prefer fabric (like t-shirts, pajamas, jackets, etc). I take those disclaimers with a grain of salt. If it was lead in the paint on Thomas wooden railway (for which they had recall for that exact reason, and which never had those California disclaimers on the box), I would be concerned as that paint chips when chewed on. There are few questions one should ask really. What chemical exactly? Where? What does it take to actually get to it?

Said that, yes, it would be nice if item descriptions showed those warnings. Not that much for safety, but to keep world a bit cleaner place once those products eventually get discarded.

What a joke. Anything with wiring in it will have this on it because Soder has lead in it. All electronics get this warning. Ca has nutso laws that no other state or the feds honor. The feds do not require this sticker because the Soder in the wiring is not a health hazard.

All plastic toys cause cancer because plastic is byproduct of oil. That does not mean that people need to stuff their mouth with plastic toys or wear those things on body with direct contact. The plastic is not radioactive as well.

The reason they put this California labeling is because many people are uneducated on where things come from and they tend to do foolish things with them. Simply put today generations heavily educated on Internet lost their survival instinct or ability to leran about hygiene. Sometimes they are educated so well that they panic or spread panic.

How much do you think is plastic bag from store harmful and causes cancer? Yet you still bring your shoppping in it.

California has some crazy rules that they would ban cars run on gas... or perhaps even aircrafts if they could. Only problem of life is that you will never have chance to ban harmful things in one way or the other from your life.

On the subject, I think I would buy this piece for my model, but I think I would prefer something electric... even if it has California label ;)

Nobody is going to live forever...

(P.S> Check how harmful is fastfood in the first place. California should label all those places as scientificallly proven as harmful to people's health)
