Prop 65 / Chemical Exposure Health Risks
California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (“Proposition 65”), is a “right to know” statute requiring the State of California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. There are currently over 800 chemicals in the list. Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide “clear and reasonable” warnings to consumers before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone in California to a chemical that is in the list.
