What Is California Proposition 65 and Why Do I See These Warnings on Products?
01- 09- 2018
California’s Proposition 65, called the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, gives California consumers the right to know when products contain chemicals known by the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. While the proposition is pretty old, it’s been brought into new light in recent years as the state of California is now requiring businesses and manufactures to inform consumers about exposure to chemicals on the list. As of August 30, 2018, manufacturers of products sold in California were required to notify consumers when products contain chemicals on the state’s Proposition 65 list. We have updated our website and packaging to include these warnings. You can find the warning near most product UPC labels and on our website.
