CA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING
What Is CA Proposition 65?
In November 1986, California voters approved a ballot initiative to address concerns about exposures to toxic chemicals. That initiative became The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, better known by its original name, Proposition 65. The law is overseen and regulated by The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) and is enforced by the California Attorney General's Office.
The proposition requires all businesses to inform customers and residents if any of their products contain chemicals that have been linked to cancer, birth defects, or reproduction harm. Chemicals and substances on the CA Proposition 65 list include both naturally occurring elements and synthetic chemicals, such as color dyes, solvents, or by-products associated with such substances.
What Does a CA Proposition 65 Warning Mean?
All businesses are required to notify employees and customers of any products either in the workplace or available for purchase that contain substances noted on the CA Proposition 65 list. If an item has a warning on it, this means that a company is aware of the presence of one or more of such chemicals.
