What is with it with California? Maybe some readers from that lovely state can comment on this.
I live in Pennsylvania. Some things I buy have a tag that says, “this product has been known to cause cancer or birth defects in California.”
This past week I bought a pair of (Avia) sneakers that causes cancer in California. I couldn’t figure out how it would cause cancer. They are shoes! I don’t intend to eat them, lick them or excessively touch them. In fact when I wear them, I will have socks on so there won’t be much contact.
In doing some minor research I found it is also on jewelry, dishes, vacuum cleaners and other things. I would understand if it was on paint, food or chemical products, but vacuum cleaners and sneakers? Really?
Do other states know this? My sneakers do not cause cancer in Pennsylvania. I am terrified to visit California with these sneakers because something there makes them poisonous. Is this a campaign instigated by flip-flop manufacturers? Are sneakers ok in Nevada or New Mexico? Does it happen when the plane touches down? How do the sneakers know which state they are in?
I am not picking on California because I just love their happy cows. See video below! It’s also the land where I discovered margaritas, Ghirardelli chocolate and the Pier I Imports stores many, many years ago. That is not a bad thing.
