Mercury is an essential part of all compact fluorescent bulbs (also called CFLs). Therefore, our CFL bulbs have a mercury warning and a very small amount of mercury within them.
The amount of mercury in our bulbs is the least amount possible, less than many competitors, and could fit on the end of a ballpoint pen.
Also, it's important to know that there is no mercury leakage or exposure unless a bulb breaks.
