What is California Proposition 65?
Also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, California Proposition 65 is a law that requires warning to consumers if a product exposes consumers to a wide variety of chemicals known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive harm. Proposition 65 applies only in California.
What does the Proposition 65 Warning mean?
A Proposition 65 warning means that the business issuing the warning knows that one or more listed chemicals is merely present in its product. A warning must be given unless a business demonstrates that the exposure it causes poses "no significant risk."
Why does ABCrosby place a Proposition 65 warning on its products?
A Proposition 65 warning means one of two things: (1) the company evaluated the exposure and has concluded that product exceeds the "no significant risk level"; or (2) the company has chosen to provide a warning simply based on its knowledge about the presence of a listed chemical without attempting to evaluate the exposure.
ABCrosby does not currently sell products in California but may do so in the future. Out of an abundance of caution, ABCrosby has elected to add this warning to its website.
