Proposition 65 Explanation
The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, otherwise known as Proposition 65, is unique to California. Proposition 65 promises to protect the residents of California from the 800+ chemicals that California considers to be harmful carcinogens or reproductive toxicants. The elements lead, PVC, and brass are included in this list, as well as many others.
In order to stay compliant with Proposition 65, businesses that supply products to California are required to include warning labels signifying the fact that the product that is being purchased may be harmful and could cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
The list of these harmful chemicals is updated at least once a year and The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment is in charge of Proposition 65.
