Prop 65: What You Should Know
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly known as “Proposition 65”, requires manufacturers to provide warnings on products that may expose Californians to threshold levels of chemicals on the State’s Prop 65 list. In August 2016, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) adopted new Prop 65 regulations that become fully effective for products manufactured after August 30, 2018. The new Prop 65 regulations include changes to the State’s “safe harbor” requirements for warning language and use. These changes address not only the potential labeling of product packaging, but also the requirements for warnings on website landing pages and catalog pages used to sell products to consumers in California.
M.B. Sturgis Inc. & M.B. Sturgis Fittings Inc. will update the labeling of our products as required to meet the new safe harbor requirements of Proposition 65.
Even though a product may be found to contain a Proposition 65-‐listed chemical, it does not mean that a warning is necessarily required or that use of the product will cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm. Nor does it mean that a product is unsafe.
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including lead, which is known to the state of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling. For more information go to: www.p65warnings.ca.gov
