Prop 65 Warning Labels
What are Prop 65 Labels?
Proposition 65 is a California state law requiring “clear and reasonable” labeling on products that contain chemicals that may cause birth defects, other reproductive harm, or cancer. Distributors, manufacturers, or retailers caught selling products that are not in compliance with Proposition 65 will be subject to fines or other legal action.
What are the Prop 65 Label Requirements?
As of August 30, 2018, new rules took effect for California Proposition 65 labels and signs.
Companies doing business or selling products in California are required to provide “clear and reasonable” warnings before knowingly exposing Californians to certain chemicals the state has identified as hazardous. This warning can be given in several ways, including labeling a consumer product, posting signs at the workplace, distributing notices at a rental housing complex or publishing notices in a newspaper.
