LEAD COATED CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

These are Wal-Mart brand Christmas lights. The second statement on the back of the box reads, "CAUTION: Prop 65 WARNING: Handling the coated electrical wires of this product exposes you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. Wash hands after use." I also have another brand of lights and they have the same warning. Both brands are made in CHINA! I myself will be returning them to the store and I would advise everyone to CAREFULLY READ THE BOX of ANY light set before allowing children to help decorate.
