California Proposition 65

– What is California Proposition 65? 

Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. The proposition protects the state’s drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals.

Proposition 65 requires the state to maintain and update a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.

California’s Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for certain products that contain chemicals above certain threshold levels.      

The general Proposition 65 notice is as follows: WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Proposition 65 notice for wood products is as follows: WARNING: Drilling, sawing, sanding or machining wood products generates wood dust, a substance known to the State of California to cause cancer. Use a respirator or other safeguards to avoid inhaling wood dust.

While the warning label is only required for items sold to California, Anderson Teak often works directly with OEMs or Online Dealers without knowing where our furniture will be going.  Many of our larger customers also stock our furniture in there warehouses and ship to California.  For this reason it is also important for our dealers to leave these warning labels on the furniture when shipping to customers in California.  Therefore, we have decided to include the California Proposition 65 warning, either printed on the box, put sticker on the furniture or add flier inside the box regardless of its destination. 

Again, Anderson Teak is not only committed to make beautiful furniture, superior product that last for generations but we are also committed to our customers, employees and colleagues as a responsible manufacturer of high end furniture.  Be assured that we do everything possible way to protect harmful chemical from incoming contact with our customer, employees and their family.
