Default Plastic Barbed fitting safe??

Hello I am in the process of making a spraybar and I needed a barbed fitting to join my vinyl tube and pvc. I went to Home Depot and found a plastic barbed fitting. when I got home I noticed some text on the back, that says: "This product contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.". I'm thinking thats some red flags if I have ever saw one but I just want to make sure because im not really in the mood to go online and buy a pvc one. Thank you for your time.


EDIT: I have noticed alot of fake aquarium plants have this warning too not sure what that means though.

I did some research and supposedly it conforms to nsf 61 which means its safe for drinking water I think... if thats the case i guess its fine? What do you guys think?
