Overview of California Proposition 65 regulation
California Proposition 65 regulation affects manufacturers of products sold in California that contain any one of hundreds of chemicals listed by the State of California as known carcinogens or reproductive toxins. Over the last decade, nearly 2000 settlements and more than $144.6 million in damages have been paid by California businesses as the result of litigation from aggressive plaintiffs’ attorneys against products that have the potential to contain any of the listed chemicals.*
This means that manufacturers are required to ensure that user exposure is below the acceptable levels set in the law, or to properly label products with the language “known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.”**
Given the volume of settlements paid out, can you afford not to label your products? Find out how you can mitigate your risk by using third-party toxicology assessments and product testing to verify your claims.
