Guerilla Co2 tanks contains traces of lead?

So I was reading the label on one of our GA Co2 tanks and it had a warning that said something like " warning this product contains traces of lead, wash hands after use" I was really surprised and got wondering if all co2 tanks were like this and GA were the only ones (that I have noticed) to put on warnings. What are your guys thoughts on this?

I think they all might have some sort of amount of lead in them but not a huge amount of it. It's good that GA actually has warnings about it though.

All brass has very miniscule traces of lead in it. CA law requires that anything with any amount of lead needs this warning. So anyone that does not have this warning would probably be in violation of CA law and not be able to sell it there.

To find out more info about brass goto http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brass and look under Lead Content.
