It’s understandable that consumers are concerned about these product warnings, but it’s important to understand that just because a product has a warning notice that it does not necessarily mean its harmful. California sets threshold limits far below the “safe” limits set by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), World Health Organization, Environmental Protection Agency and various European Health Agencies. Proposition 65 guidelines are a lot different from federal labeling guidelines. Under federal law if a consumable product contains excessive levels of toxins, its banned. Proposition 65 can be very confusing to consumers so it’s important to keep in mind that a warning on a product is a “right to know” and not a ban.
