California State Proposition 65

What is Proposition 65?
In 1986, California voters approved an initiative to address their growing concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals. That initiative became the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (also known as Proposition 65 or Prop 65). Proposition 65 requires the State to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. In addition, Proposition 65 requires businesses to notify Californians about chemicals found in the products they purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By providing this information, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about protecting themselves from exposure to these chemicals.

What types of chemicals are on the Proposition 65 list?
The list contains a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals. These chemicals include additives or ingredients in pesticides, common household products, food, drugs, dyes, or solvents. Listed chemicals may also be used in manufacturing and construction, or they may be by products of chemical processes, such as motor vehicle exhaust. The list is updated periodically and currently includes more than 900 chemicals, many of which are normally present in commen materials, such as vinyl.

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. Please be assured that Molten products labeled in accordance with Proposition 65 comply with all applicable governmental standards, including those under the jurisdiction of the CPSC. Molten labels applicable products as follows:

What requirements does Proposition 65 place on companies doing business in California?

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.
