California Proposition 65 Warning
WHAT IS PROPOSITION 65?
Proposition 65, officially known as the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, is a law requiring warning labels be provided to California consumers when they may be exposed to chemicals identified by California as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity.
This list contains a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. These warnings are intended to help California consumers make informed decisions about potential exposures to these chemicals from the products they use.
Complete information about California Proposition 65 can be found here:
The following warning label is included with many VMS Racing/True Spike products and it is on EVERYTHING we ship to California:
WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, and birth defects or other reproductive harm.For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
I AM NOT A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, WHY IS THIS INCLUDED?
VMS Racing/True Spike products are sold and distributed worldwide. It would be extremely difficult and costly to determine which products will be ultimately sold or brought into California. Therefore, to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements, we have decided to include these warnings on all of our products, regardless of destination.
ARE VMS RACING/TRUE SPIKE PRODUCTS SAFE?
VMS Racing/True Spike would like to emphasize that a Proposition 65 warning does not indicate a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements. Determining anticipated levels of exposure to listed chemicals can be very complex and costly. It is very costly to prove that the presence of a listed chemical is below California's "No Significant Risk Level" (NSRL). Out of an abundance of caution, VMS Racing/True Spike has elected to place the Proposition 65 warning labels on ALL our products.
WHAT CHEMICALS ARE KNOWN TO CALIFORNIA TO CAUSE CANCER OR REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY?
Here is the latest list as of this writing.
If you look at the list you can see that it would be impossible for anyone, except maybe for either a huge company with limitless resources, or a company that only sells one product to test each and every single product for the hundreds of chemicals on the list.
