California Proposition 65 Warning
Please be advised that some of our products may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
For those who reside in California, please note that we are providing this warning in compliance with California's Proposition 65, also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. This Act was enacted to ensure that customers are informed about potential exposure to chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
We take your health and safety seriously. While the risk is very low, we are required by California law to include this warning label on our products. The chemicals that may be found in our products are present in many other everyday items, and the exposure levels are far below the 'no significant risk' levels determined by California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA).
