About California Proposition 65
California’s Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that may contain one or more of approximately 800 common substances known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels. This law also states that any company that delivers these products to addresses in California MUST place a warning on the product, usually in the form of a sticker. We care about our customers’ safety and are providing the following warning for products linked to this page:
WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
What is the risk level? For a chemical that causes cancer, the “no significant risk level” is defined as the level of exposure that would result in not more than one excess case of cancer in 100,000 individuals exposed to the chemical over a 70-year lifetime. In other words, a person exposed to the chemical at the “no significant risk level” for 70 years would not have more than a “one in 100,000″ chance of developing cancer as a result of that exposure.
If you are a customer receiving a product in California and you have concerns about a product containing the Prop 65 warning, please inquire about the product you are purchasing before ordering. For more information on Prop 65, please visit http://www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65.html
