Proposition 65

Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986


Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986 in California. California companies are required to provide warnings to Californians about chemicals that may cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm under this act.


According to Proposition 65, California must maintain a list of chemicals that are known to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. Approximately 900 chemicals are currently on this list, which must be updated at least once a year.


Kalorik reviewed our product lines and determined that warnings should be provided based on the potential presence of specific chemicals, without attempting to determine exposure levels. Regardless of whether these products are below the level of concern outlined in Proposition 65 or do not present any exposure, we have decided to label all our products that may contain one or more of them.


Efforts will be made by Kalorik to label all cartons and unit packages if any possibility exists of containing one of the chemicals we identified. We encourage you to contact our product specialists if you have any concerns about our products. A Prop65 warning label will be placed on our product packaging as a precaution. It does not necessarily indicate that the product's contents exceed the California-established "significant risk" level.
