Sounds an awful lot like FUD to me. Unless there are specific vulnerabilities that these people know of that are present in Chromium but not Chrome then I wouldn't worry.
I'm not sure how true it is but my understanding is that Chromium sends much less data back to Google about your browsing habits, but that may be FUD also.
One possible advantage I can see that Chrome has over Chromium is that Flash player will be part of it so if you need Flash you know you'll have it even if Adobe were to pull the plug on the Linux version or render it obsolete by another version update.
