Question from Phil

I recently purchased an every drop water filter for a Whirlpool refrigerator. I was shocked to see a prop 65 warning on it.  I’m wondering if there is a company that makes a refrigerator that does not require proprietary toxic filters?

I called the company and they claim there is no Proposition Warning label for the filters.  I also did not find one on the filter.  Where are you seeing it and on what model?  Could you be referring to the copy of the filter that states that if it is not maintained and operated properly as specified in the owner’s manual, there is a risk of exposure to contaminants?  If so, that is not a Prop 65 warning but rather refers to the fact that if the filter is used past its intended life, some contaminants from the water that have been collected by the filter could be re-released.  If you can provide me with more information on the model and exactly where you see the Prop 65 warning I might be able to be of more help.
