California Proposition 65

On August 30, 2018 the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) began enforcing new warning requirements for California Prop 65. These changes apply to all products that contain any of the 900+ chemicals that are on the OEHHA list as being known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm and may potentially be supplied to any California consumers.

In order to comply with the new Proposition 65 rules, many manufacturers have begun to add a blanket statement to all products even though testing may have proven no harmful chemicals are present. The lack of these warnings can lead to serious fines and penalties against the manufacturer, suppliers, distributors and end buyers. 

Printfection works to partner with responsible suppliers that test their product and don't sell items with harmful chemicals so labels aren't required but many vendors still opt to include the warning label on all of their products anyways in order to avoid potential fines and penalties.
