may expose you to the following list of chemicals including Methyl Isobutyl Ketone, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
Carbon black, Titanium dioxide, wood dust, toluene, chromium, nickel, lead, formaldehyde 2, ethylene glycol, formaldehyde, triglycidyl isocyanurate, cobalt, diisononyl phthalate, bisphenol A (BPA), antimony trioxide, methyl isobutyl ketone.
Prop 65 requires that if one or more of the listed chemicals may be present in a product, a warning must be provided. By law, a warning must be given for listed chemicals unless exposure is low enough to pose no significant risk of cancer or is significantly below levels observed to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. A Proposition 65 warning merely means that the business issuing the warning knows that one or more listed chemicals may be present in its products. A warning must be given unless a business demonstrates that the exposure it causes poses “no significant risk.” Because it can be very difficult to prove the impossibility of a risk, we choose to disclose the possibility of the existence of the substances.
According to the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment:
For a chemical that causes cancer, the “no significant risk level” is defined as the level of exposure that would result in not more than one excess case of cancer in 100,000 individuals exposed to the chemical over a 70-year lifetime. In other words, a person exposed to the chemical at the “no significant risk level” for 70 years would not have more than a “one in 100,000” chance of developing cancer as a result of that exposure. For chemicals that are listed as causing birth defects or reproductive harm, the “no observable effect level” is determined by identifying the level of exposure that has been shown to not pose any harm to humans or laboratory animals. Proposition 65 then requires this “no observable effect level” to be divided by 1,000 in order to provide an ample margin of safety. Businesses subject to Proposition 65 are required to provide a warning if they cause exposures to chemicals listed as causing birth defects or reproductive harm that exceed 1/1000th of the “no observable effect level.”
