Why is there a Proposition 65 warning on the product?
Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, is a Californian law that requires businesses to provide warnings to individuals about significant exposures to chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
The list of chemicals published by California contains a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals, which might be used in the process of manufacturing.
The proposition ensures the consumers the rights to know. The warning is meant to better inform the public of the exposures to these chemicals in their daily environment; however, it does not necessarily mean that the product is unsafe to use.
