"This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and/or other reproductive harm. Thoroughly wash hands after installing, handling, cleaning or otherwise touching this product".
This particular label was observed on LED packaging in South Carolina. The State of California has more stringent standards than the rest of the country concerning LED lighting. We encourage you to read the studies and articles available concerning the handling and disposal of LED lights, and make your own determination about their use. We would recommend that you attempt to recycle all LED lighting, rather than place it in garbage that goes to a landfill.
LED lumens decrease with usage, and are affected by heat. Regardless of the lumens output (even at zero) the unit continues to draw the same wattage. Read more about it here.
