Fiskars Pinking Shears

So I went to JoAnns today to pick up a pair of Pinking Shears because they were on sale. After a sort mix-up I picked out a pair, paid for them and took them home. As I was about to rip them open I decided to first read the Lifetime Warranty on the back. After I read it I noticed in small print a "WARNING" note at the bottom. This is what it said: "Warning: This product contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer birth defects and/or reproductive harm."

We KNOW this and yet we just put it in small print down at the bottom. With all the stink about lead and the new law they just passed you'd think they would throw a stink about this too, I mean it does affect children and women! I'm going to return these and write a few people...

Oh and that new law, I know so many women who are now closing their at home bow shop, Etsy or Website because although they do not use paint or plastic, all products intended for children must be tested. You have to pay for the testing and although these women do make a profit they can't afford to have everything they make tested, I think its a load. I mean yes we need to test, but I think they are targeting too many people, too many of the wrong people. I'm going to read up on it more because this effects what I'm doing too. Anyone know more or something I might be missing please let me know!

I don't expect much more to ever be posted on this blog, and I'm largely just posting this to share it with some particular friends....
