Are Products with a Proposition 65 Warning Unsafe?

A Proposition 65 warning informs a consumer that that the State of California has determined that s/he may be exposed to carcinogens or reproductive toxins that exceed certain threshold levels. This is not the same as a regulatory decision that a product is “safe” or “unsafe.” The State of California encourages consumers to seek information about the actual levels of exposure from the business that produces the product in order to decide whether to accept, avoid, or take measures to mitigate the exposure risk.
