This can be true , and also confusing, as a lot of variables enter into this equation, such as - do your rabbits have health problems, are they old pets, or breeding stock, are they getting grass hay with alfalfa based pellets, or are they getting alfalfa with alfalfa based pellets , what else are you feeding? some plants make the problem better , some worse, -- etc.
When deciding what is good and bad for your rabbits some research should be done on the whole diet being fed and not just a little on an individual plant, also the difference between dry feeds and fresh green feeds is huge.
I feed a lot of kale, and weeds, [including dandelion] -adding alfalfa to this already calcium rich diet might be too much for older rabbits--..
hard neck garlic varieties for fall planting.
meat-mutt rabbits, a few laying hens, and too many ducks..

I'd just rather not take the risk.

Hey Guys, you know when we were talking about our state rabbit selling laws in this forum?
Look what I found! http://kpr.craigslist.org/grd/4818006513.html
Sent 'em a nasty letter about their unlawfulness. ....... Just kidding! Haha, just sent them an e-mail informing them of the state law.
Found a handy website with the state laws about it too: http://wabbitwiki.com/wiki/Rabbit_sale_laws_in_the_US
