Talk about a crash landing.
United Airlines sent employees a scarf that flight attendants are required to wear during her October in honor ofBreast Cancer Awareness Month.
And shockingly, the company's scarves, adorned with tiny pink ribbons, may contain chemicals that can lead to cancer and reproductive harm.
It is unclear whether the two printed scarves drew attention to carcinogenicity. Do these scarves appear to be made of a synthetic silk-like material, or the plastic they were packaged in?
However, California-based employees and their families who received the package found it "jarring." They told the Post on the condition of anonymity.
"It's a very nice gesture to acknowledge the cause, but someone didn't think twice while doing this. Something designed to raise awareness of cancer can cause it,' said a family member, who was very close to the dreaded disease just a few months ago.
The source added that California "sometimes went overboard, but it was still a big oversight."
In 1986, California passed Proposition 65. It requires companies to issue warnings about products containing chemicals or exposure to chemicals that could cause cancer or other health problems. There are over 800 chemicals on the list, according to the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment.
United Airlines has not returned requests for comment.
