Dirty Brass Warning



WARNING – This product can expose you to chemicals including lead and lead compounds, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www. P65Warnings.ca.gov

According to the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), chronic exposure to lead in adults is associated with impaired kidney function, high blood pressure, nervous system and neurobehavioral effects, cognitive dysfunction later in life, and subtle cognitive effects attributed to prenatal exposure. Pregnant women need to be especially concerned with reducing blood lead levels since this can have serious impact on the developing fetus.

Other effects of exposure to lead include adverse effects on cognitive functions, adverse effects on sperm/semen quality and delayed conception, cognitive aging, deficits in visuomotor dexterity, lower reaction times, and attention deficit. At higher blood lead levels, symptoms can include headache, fatigue, sleep disturbance, joint pain, myalgia, anorexia, and constipation, acute effects such as convulsions, coma, and in some cases, death, to more chronic conditions such as anemia, peripheral neuropathy, interstitial kidney fibrosis, and severe abdominal cramping.

Take appropriate precautions to reduce the risk of exposure, including but not limited to the following: Do Not Eat, Drink or Smoke When Handling. Do Not Remove Dust By Blowing or Shaking. Dispose of Lead Contaminated Wash Water in Accordance with Applicable Local, State, or Federal Regulations. Use proper hygiene and take precautions not to transfer lead dust from shell casings via your skin, hair, clothes or shoes to other surfaces or other people.
