Prop 65 warning on furniture

In looking for a dining room set I'm noticing this warning on about 3/4 of the sets I'm interested in. The warning seems to be about formaldehyde in furniture. The CA website is pretty vague and I'm just not sure whether to pass up the set or not. My kids are grown, but I will have grandchildren coming to eat plus the fact I'm not certain I want to add more cancer causing products in my home than there already are. Am I being silly- is it just California being overcautious- or should I move on and find something else?

It does say "solid wood" though I'm sure the wood isn't the best quality so maybe that is where the warning is from. I obviously don't know much about wood and furniture - and I'm not sure where to find reasonably priced dining sets that wouldn't have this warning?
