Why does my mat have a warning label on it?

Print ThisPrint ThisEmail ThisEmail This

This warning is placed on these products due to the legal requirements as required by the State of California. Prym Consumer USA is adamant about product testing and our testing indicated the mats contained a small amount of phthalates so you'll see the following warning label on our Omnigrid® cutting mats:

WARNING: This mat contains phthalates, substances known to the State of California to cause birth defects and other reproductive harm.

If this is a concern to you, we suggest you clean the mat before each use with a mild dishwashing detergent diluted with cool or tepid water; then, after each use, wash your hands thoroughly.
