TOPEAK AND CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65
In 1986, California voters approved Proposition 65, an initiative to address their growing concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals. That statute is officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, and often referred to as Proposition 65. The law requires businesses to provide warnings to California consumers about potential exposure to listed chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list of chemicals, which is regularly updated, has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals.
Proposition 65 does not ban or restrict the sale of products containing chemicals on the list. The warnings are intended to help Californians make informed decisions about the products they use and the places they go.
