California Proposition 65
Why publish this warning?
Products with any amount of substances covered by Proposition 65 — even at levels that may not be harmful — must carry this warning unless proven to have “no significant risk” of exposure.
Since almost all electronic and motorized products contain 1 or more of the chemicals listed under Proposition 65, we added this warning to make sure our customers stay informed.
With all our products, the exposure may be well within the “no significant risk” range; however, we choose to put the Proposition 65 warning label on our products to help you make an informed purchase decision.
According to the California government, “The fact that a product bears a Proposition 65 warning does not mean by itself that the product is unsafe.”
They also explain, “You could think of Proposition 65 more as a ‘right to know’ law than a pure product safety law.” (http://www.p65warnings.ca.gov)
About California Proposition 65
In 1986, California voters approved the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, known as Proposition 65, requiring businesses to provide warnings to customers about potential exposure to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Proposition 65, officially the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, is a law that requires warnings be provided to California consumers when they might be exposed to chemicals identified by California as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity. The warnings are intended to help california consumers make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals from the products they use. The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) administers the Proposition 65 program and publishes the listed chemicals, which includes more that 850 chemicals. In August 2016, OEHHA adopted new regulations, effective on August 30, 2018, which change the information required in Proposition 65 warnings.
