California's Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals. We care about our customers' safety and hope that the information below helps with your purchasing decisions.
California voters approved Proposition 65 in 1986 to “protect California citizens and the State’s drinking water sources from chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and to inform citizens about exposure to such chemicals.” This law applies to people and businesses in California, including those who ship products into the state. Under Prop 65, the State maintains a long list of chemicals that are considered under the statute to be either carcinogens or reproductive toxicants. Many chemicals are on both lists. Currently, over 900 chemicals are listed. These chemicals can be naturally occurring in the Earth's soil, in the environment or manufactured, and are found in a vast array of consumer products.
One of the core principals of our business is to provide our customers with high quality and safe products. Our products meet all applicable federal standards.
The following warning statements are required by California law and apply to all the products available from us. This California regulation does not address safe levels for most of the chemicals on the list. Anything detectable at any level, including trace amounts, must be noted with the “Safe Harbor” wording.
Proposition 65 Warning
If your company intends to use our components in a product sold or delivered in California, we recommend that you take steps to determine whether the warning requirements of California’s “Prop 65” apply. Your company is solely responsible for determining whether your finished consumer product needs to be labeled in compliance with Prop 65.
