Hehe, this is funny after reading your note. These signs are plastered all over my apartment complex. :) I assume it is because of the asbestos. One place is on my ceiling. Apparently popcorn ceilings from buildings in the seventies and earlier are almost assured to be made from asbestos.

Modern parking garages also apparently use asbestos even today for insulation.

Default To adam: asbestos warning signs

That's interesting. I think the sign should list the chemical it's concerned about. I thought maybe it was exhaust gases in the parking garage so I was holding my breath the whole time. If I had known it was asbestos, then I'd know not to touch the walls and lick my fingers!

Actually, it can't be asbestos. Asbestos causes a certain type of lung cancer, not birth defects or other reproductive harm. Don't know what it is though.
