Due to current laws, all products containing components with known harmful substances have to disclose to the consumer. In this case the components containing a trace of lead do not come in contact with your consumable beverage. Now, if you were to eat the coffee maker in its entirety at a rate of say ten thousand a day every day for 1000 years you might have a few percent greater chance of developing cancer.

It says on the insert the product contains chemicals and lead known to cause cancer and birth defects. wash hands after handling product. is it safe to use. I think not.


This sounds like the California warnings placed on many items. Assemble the product, and use according to manufacturer recommendations. It will work fine for you.

Is there lead in this product? I bought some and it came with a Prop 65 warning.


Ask replacements.com for the model / style dinnerware and manufacturer's website. If they can not provide the info you need - return it if you suspect that it may contain lead. If they do provide the manufacturer's info, you should contact the them for their explanation of the lead content (if any is present). Replacements.com may simply be stuffing every box that contains *anything* being sent to CA with this warning to cover themselves - while possible scaring more people than should be. I doubt any stainless steel utensil would contain lead - but who knows!

Can a basil cell ca of the bridge of the nose lead to brain ca?


Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer in the USA. Basal cell cancer grows slowly and is usually painless.. This type of skin cancer commonly occurs in people over age 40. But it can occur in younger people who have had extensive sun exposure.

According to the Basal cell carcinoma MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia, "Basal cell skin cancer almost never spreads. But, left untreated, it may grow (spread) into surrounding areas and nearby tissues and bone."

Causes cancer?


It's a result of Proposition 65 (here's a wiki page about it) a California law requiring that sticker on any product containing lead, among other things.

Your GPS has electrical components which are attached with solder, a tin/lead alloy. Since it contains lead, the law says that it must bear that warning.

If you don't eat it, you personally should be fine.

If you recycle it instead of throwing it in the trash, the groundwater should be fine.

Lead in the coffee maker


It does contain a small amount of lead inside a copper coil located in the electronics of the machine. This part does not come in contact with the water, heater or any other part that would cause lead contamination of your coffee.

This page has a great write up explaining it:

Info. for Model No. MP-CD450 indicates a "Warning: Handling the


Hi there. The majority of electrical apparatus use cords that contain a small quantity of lead.
This metal is dangerous if ingested, and should not be a main concerned if handled, providing that you wash your hands afterward.

I quote what American Cancer Society says:

Many electrical wires and cables have small amounts of lead in their outside insulation (surface covering), which can rub off on the hands of people who touch the wires. People can be exposed to lead by ingesting it, so if they eat or put their hands in their mouths without washing up after handling these wires, they can take in small amounts of lead. The bigger hazard is likely to be to toddlers and babies who put wires in their mouths. Since they crawl around on the floor, it can be challenging to keep them away from wires. How can I avoid exposure (and protect children in the house)?
  • The most important point to avoid exposure is to wash your hands after handling the electrical cords to avoid swallowing any lead that rubs off onto them.
  • Don't eat or feed children while handling lead-containing cords or stringing holiday lights.
  • Since small children are more likely to put cords, fingers, and other objects in their mouths, keep lead-containing wires out of their reach.
  • Children are more affected by lead (see ACS document, Lead), and should always have their hands washed before handling food and eating.
