From the website, the above member referenced.
"[Manufacturers] find it's easier and more cost effective just to place the Prop 65 warning on all their products rather than just place them on the ones going into California," he explained.
[...] Should consumers be concerned about the label? Christiansen thinks so, though he notes much of the list contains chemicals already regulated by the FDA and EPA.

"That's one of the kind of knocks against Prop 65 is that some people feel like it's a bit of overkill, because California isn't really accomplishing a whole lot more than what's already being done by federal agencies," he said.

The manager of a Utah-based facility that specializes in the analysis of chemicals in waters, soils and hazardous chemicals said just because a cancer-linked chemical is present in a product, it doesn't mean it's at a harmful level." ( https://www.ksl.com/?sid=27711857 )

Also, just as long you're not planning on eating several of these or finding some other creative means of absorbing these so called cancer causing agents (they're identified as increasing the risk but that increase could be 0.1% IF you're taking in large amounts, so really, for scale of reference, the increased risk of getting cancer is made slightly higher than say the statiscal chances of being crushed by the body of an elk thrown in the air from triggering a plastic explosive that fell from a military supply convoy...

That warning is on about every product anymore. Look around and enjoy life.

FWIW, I bought one and it works great!
