My mother brought a new machine on Friday and it came Saturday. It was on sale. She hasn't used it yet. She noticed it said. " The paint used to paint the inside of the machine may cause cancer". She doesn't want to use it. She rather have one that is made in Canada. Can she take it back now? Would you still use it even tho it said this?

I'm sure she could take it back if she hasn't used it. I'm also sure the cancer risk would be very, VERY low. But if she has doubts, she should return it.

Thanks rob. I was thinking the same thing about the low risk.

Probably in order to have any risk at all, someone would have to scrape off all the paint and eat it. Smile  But it might give her peace of mind to get another washer.

Haha yeah. Knowing my mother! She also took back a tea kettle to for that same reason. I guess my mother doesn't like anything made from California.

I can understand the tea kettle, because you would be boiling water in it to make tea and that would be drinking the water from it.  As far as the washer goes, you'd have to eat the paint; like Rob said, and I doubt you all would be standing around the washing machine, chipping the paint off and eating it.....The USA has strict laws about paint with lead in it, so not sure if the kettle was actually made there or somewhere else and a company in California sold it....altho they check for that as well.....  scratchead

Me to I understand too. Yeah I get what you guy's are saying. I guess my mother on the hand doesn't see it in that why. Well that's good that the U.S.A as stricted laws on it.( Canada does to) I think my mother just didn't feel safe using it. The store manger did understand my mothers feelings about it. They are going to look into that now. She was able to get another washer.

That's good news. I'm glad she was able to get another washer.

So many products have compounds in them that can cause cancer, birth defects, etc. It's like we can't move without somebody saying "such and such" causes cancer. In some countries, labelling products with warnings is mandatory - in others it's voluntary. At the end of the day, many companies just want to indemnify themselves from potential lawsuits. Just because something doesn't have a label though, doesn't necessarily mean it isn't dangerous. Sad isn't it?

I bought a coffee mug once that had a label about the materials in the mug causing birth defects. I didn't use it for about a year!!
