RE: omg, Facebook Oculus Quest 2 causes cancer?! 🙈 (California Proposition 65)

California has (probably) the strictest regulations in North America when it comes to health and environmental issues. The device probably uses a chemical that is regulated in the state. We had the same warning on a kitchenaid appliance we bought in Canada. I'm just speculating here but my guess would be that the chemical being used is probably teflon or something like that - a spray coating to keep the device clean, so dirt and oil dont stick to it as readily. Again, I'm just speculating here, I don't actually know.

Yes, it's really a strange warning and sort of useless because it doesn't state the chemicals and actual risk. Maybe it has to do something with the plastic / BPA? But without more information it's useless.

Yeah, BPA and something in the plastic is a good guess. I agree that its not very helpful. It would be nice to know if the risk comes from it touching your skin or from eating it because if its from eating it then its not really a problem. Its probably safe to assume that you're not going to eat the headset hahaha🤣🤣

.... or copulate with it - that could be another risk they tested it for in California!
