I got a message from the company when I got to buy my new SCARPA INSTINC VS, they said the following
¨This product can expose you to chemicals including HEXAVALENT CHROMIUM, FORMALDEHYDE, and PREFLUORINATED COMPOUNDS which are known by the state of california to cause CANCER and reproductive HARM.
PLease share and Comment
these chemicals are in a lot of textiles and other products. it's just a disclaimer so you can't sue the state of california for not telling you that everything could give you cancer. before panicking, try google...
