CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: INFORMATION ABOUT PROP 65
What is Proposition 65?
The State of California's Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (commonly referred to as Proposition 65 or Prop 65) requires that companies warn consumers of exposures to any chemicals and carcinogens which have been determined by the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm.
What kinds of chemicals and materials are on the list?
The list contains a wide range of chemicals and materials which in some cases may be naturally occurring everyday elements, or synthetic. This list is updated periodically and includes more than 900 chemicals, many that are normally present in common materials, such as vinyl.
Prop 65 regulates substances officially listed by California as having a 1 in 100,000 chance of causing cancer over a 70-year period or birth defects or other reproductive harm. Prop 65 prohibits businesses from knowingly exposing individuals to listed substances without providing a clear and reasonable warning.
What does Proposition 65 require?
In order to comply with Prop 65, manufacturers are required to clearly post the warning label on or at the point of sale of applicable products if they may be sold in California in order to provide adequate notice to consumers.
What does a Proposition 65 warning mean?
It means that the manufacturer issuing the warning believes that one or more listed chemicals is present in its products, even if it is only present in trace quantities. Unfortunately, the OEHHA has not determined the safety threshold levels for many of the Prop 65 listed chemicals. Please be assured that Diamond products labeled in accordance with Proposition 65 comply with all applicable governmental standards, including those under the jurisdiction of the CPSC. Diamond labels applicable products as follows:
CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING
WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm
Should I be concerned about the safety of Diamond Products?
Absolutely not! A Prop 65 warning does not mean that a product is unsafe.
How can I get more information?
The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, OEHHA, maintains a comprehensive website which explains the law and offers a list of all the chemicals and materials.
You can also email or telephone the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment's Proposition 65 Implementation Office at (916) 445-6900.
