California Proposition 65 WARNING
For Californian Consumers
Below is a list of chemicals that California’s Prop-65 has banned. Please note the first 3 chemicals on the list. This list clearly points out how insane Prop-65 is and that it’s nothing more than a money grab for California attorneys (allowing them file suit on any manufacturer, for something as inert as WOOD DUST & ASPIRIN). Regardless of how safe a product is, Manufacturers are forced to placed Prop-65 warnings on all their products, to avoid California lawsuits and penalties.
- Oral Contraceptives
- Wood Dust

What is Proposition 65?
Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals.
Proposition 65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.
Proposition 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987.
Proposition 65 became law in November 1986, when California voters approved it by a 63-37 percent margin. The official name of Proposition 65 is the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.
