California and Prop65
Proposition 65, formally titled The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act was passed overwhelming by Californians in 1986 to allow them to make informed choices about their exposure to listed chemicals that may cause cancer and birth defects.
So with that said, several manufacturers have already started placing warnings on those products that contain any of the chemicals listed while others are placing the warning on every product regardless of its chemical composition (a very CYA move and why not in this day and age of constant litigation!).
This process of placing a notice at the product level started after the launch of our eCommerce site when we already had thousands of products listed. You can see a product detail page from our web store below that shows where you may find the Prop65 Warning:
So we could get this notice listed quickly on all products, we have a mechanism in our system to provide a link to the CA Prop65 Warning website under the Resources tab towards the bottom of all product detail pages on the johnwkennedyco.com website. We will continue to add the actual warning to product detail pages when that information is made apparent by the manufacturers as to which exact products they sell that fall under Prop65.
Please feel free to visit the CA Prop65 Warning website to learn more about the law and more importantly, which chemicals are listed that could affect you and your family!
