In November 1986, California voters approved a ballot initiative to address concerns about exposures to toxic chemicals. That initiative became The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, better known by its original name, Proposition 65.
What does Proposition 65 require?
Proposition 65 requires the Governor of California to publish a list of chemicals that are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Over 700 chemicals and materials, including many metals and plastics, have been listed as of March 10, 2000.
Second, it requires Manufacturers to provide a "clear and reasonable" warning before exposing anyone to a listed chemical. This warning can be given by a variety of means, such as by labeling a consumer product, by posting signs at the workplace, or by publishing notices in a newspaper.
What does a Proposition 65 warning mean?
It means that the Manufacturer issuing the warning believes that one or more listed chemicals is present in its product, even if it is only present in trace quantities. Moftware, Inc. DBA AMZER has chosen to label all of its products available in California. We use language approved by the State of California as follows:
What kinds of chemicals and materials are on the list?
The list contains a wide range of chemicals and materials, including many metals and plastics, dyes, solvents, pesticides, drugs, food additives, and byproducts of certain processes. These chemicals may be naturally occurring, or synthetic. Some of them are ingredients of common household products, others are specialty chemicals used in common industrial applications.
What about the substances in AMZER products?
All AMZER products are safe and meet applicable federal health and safety standards. A variety of products on the market today contain safe levels of these (Proposition 65) chemicals, and when used under regulation they do not expose the consumer to any risks, whatsoever.
Please use AMZER products only for its intended purpose. Do not eat or attempt to ingest any part of an AMZER product. If any portion of this product becomes detached it should be immediately disposed.
