Dear visitors and customers,
You might notice a California-specific Prop 65 Warning on some of our product descriptions, and even included in print with some orders...
What is this Prop-65 “warning” all about?
In 1986, California voters approved an initiative known as Proposition 65. Prop 65 requires the State to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
This list has grown to include approximately 800 chemicals since it was first published in 1987. Prop 65 was designed to notify consumers if the products contain these chemicals so that they can make an informed decision about their purchases, even if the chemicals are only found in very small amounts.
For example, the law requires the warning to be included even if the product contains 1/1000th of California’s established “no observable effect level” for causing birth defects or reproductive harm.
While we have concerns regarding how Prop 65 has been written and it's subsequent use by lawyers to attack natural food companies with scientifically sound products, we are obliged to comply with any and all regulations pertaining to your protection as a customer!
Though the Prop 65 is far more stringent than FDA or EU standards it is written with customer-protection in mind, and we admire that and hope you understand it's necessity as well.
