Can we classify this as at all ironic? From an article in BizJournals sent to me by my friend Cathy T.:

Under California’s Prop. 65, consumer products that contain toxic levels of 1,4-Dioxane must have warning labels stating they may cause cancer. 1,4-Dioxane is typically produced as a byproduct when cleansing and moisturizing products are processed.

The suit, California v. Avalon Natural Products, also names as a defendant Austin-based Whole Foods Market Inc., which manufactures the 365 brand sold in the company’s stores. Beaumont Products Inc., maker of the Citrus Magic brand, and a Lakeport, Calif.-based company are also named.
The attorney general alleges the companies should have put warning labels on products containing high levels of 1,4-Dioxane, stating that they may cause cancer.
