California Prop 65

California Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted in November 1986. The proposition attempts to protect California’s drinking water from contamination by chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.  Proposition 65 requires the state of California to maintain and update a list of such chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.  Businesses meeting the qualifications of Prop. 65 are required to inform California consumers about exposures to such chemicals that exist in association with their products.
