If it contains brass, then they add lead to make it easier to work with. I bet that any brass pipes or fittings have the same warning in CA. You'd probably die of cirrhosis before cancer with the amount of beer you'd have to drink for it to even matter.

My money says that CA finally got tired of dealing with John Sokolove in their courts so they put out a rule that says everything sold in CA needs a "may cause cancer" sticker

My plumbing supply rep just informed me that starting in 2014 ALL plumbing components that touch potable water will be subject to California's law. In other words it is becoming national law. Expect brass and bronze components to increase by 20%+. People found out of compliance are subject to heavy fines. Great isn't it? How many people have been dropping dead due to lead poisoning lately?

Nah, don't be worried. They will still sell the same old brass, just with new labels "not for potable water"

About 143,000 per year, according to the WHO.

I woudn't be suprised if the hospital maternity wards in California had signs that read "Warning, Life may cause Cancer".

That's a world wide number, and mostly in countries that don't attempt to control lead.
