Why are prop 65 warnings placed on furniture sold in other states?
Unless a piece of furniture has been custom-ordered by the consumer, the manufacturer often does not know its final destination when production is completed and hangtags are applied. In addition, many retailers no longer maintain warehouses of merchandise. Instead they rely on manufacturers’ distribution centers to carry inventory. Again, until a product is sold, the manufacturer may not know its final destination. Therefore, to be safe, some manufacturers elect to label all of their merchandise.
