Proposition 65 requires that certain warnings be provided in connection with the sale, or advertising for sale, of consumer products which may result in exposure to one or more of the chemicals listed in Proposition 65.
This Notice is being provided to inform you that products produced by Continental Refrigerator contain Vinyl Chloride, which is a chemical listed in Proposition 65.
