Also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, California Proposition
65 is a law that requires warning to consumers if a product exposes consumers to a wide variety of
chemicals known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive
harm. Proposition 65 applies only in California.
A Proposition 65 warning means that the business issuing the warning knows that one or more
listed chemicals is merely present in its product. A warning must be given unless a business
demonstrates that the exposure it causes poses “no significant risk.”
A Proposition 65 warning means one of two things: (1) the company evaluated the exposure and
has concluded that product exceeds the “no significant risk level”; or (2) the company has chosen
to provide a warning simply based on its knowledge about the presence of a listed chemical
without attempting to evaluate the exposure.
Out of an abundance of caution, Audiotonix has elected to place the Proposition 65 warning on
all products shipped to California.
