Excerpted from full article at Furniture Today:

More furniture companies have filed out-of-court Proposition 65 settlements in recent weeks for items containing the flame retardants TDCPP and TCEP.

At least two more settlements from suppliers were filed with The Chanler Group, a professional Prop 65 litigant. The initial complaints cover ottomans, barstools, office chairs and folding chairs, among others, and involve chemicals in the items' foam padding.

Prop 65 is a California law requiring retail point-of-sale notification by manufacturers to consumers of products that contain chemicals known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm.  link to source
