California's Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals which are known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels. We care about our customers' safety and hope that the information below helps with your buying decisions.
We are providing the following warning for products subject to this proposition throughout our website:
WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
What is Proposition 65?
- Proposition 65 is a California law passed by California voters in 1986. Its formal name is the "Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986."
- Prop 65 requires the state to keep a list of substances that may cause cancer or reproductive toxicity in humans or animals. One can get more information about Prop 65 on California's website, http://oehha.ca.gov/prop65/background/p65plain.html
- Prop 65 requires businesses to warn customers if they will be exposed to an amount that is more than one-thousandth of the amount that causes no effect (for reproductive toxins) or that would cause more than one case of cancer in 100,000, assuming that exposure every single day for a lifetime.
- Prop 65 does not regulate the amount of chemicals in products. It just requires a warning.
- Prop 65 does not prohibit selling any product. It just requires a warning.
- Our products meet all federal, state, and local safety laws.
