    the blanket. had name of company on one label and the next a warning label.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 24, 2013

    hummerjojo - that is totally bizarre. Was it the blanket or a cover for the blanket that had the warning on it?

  • hummerjojo Oct 24, 2013

    faye, wasn't sure where to post. purchased blanket/throw today from NC State booth at state fair. when we got home son came running to me crying with his cover saying i am going to die from cancer from handling this cover. i looked at cover and there is a WARNING label about this product has lead and causes cancer..... i was totally upset/freaked/mad. i was so upset that i purchased this from the NC State booth and glad i didn't buy anything else. they should be ashamed. wanted to let everyone beware... wasted money. lesson learned never buy anything again without opening. should i contact anyone and let them know... it's a big warning label on the inside
