Proposition 65 is a law that requires all businesses to provide warnings to customers in California about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
As an ecommerce business owner, it's your responsibility to inform all your customers in California if the products you sell contain any of the chemicals mentioned in the Proposition 65 warning list. Customers need to see this information before they make a purchase.
These are the Printful products that contain the chemicals on the list:
- All-Over Print Athletic Long Shorts and Athletic Short Shorts can expose you to chemicals including Abiraterone acetate, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
- Vintage Cap | Otto Cap 18-1248, Snapback | Otto Cap 125-978, 5 Panel Camper | Otto Cap 151-1098, Mesh Back Snapback | Otto Cap 154-1124, Knit Beanie | Otto Cap 82-480, Distressed Dad Hat | Otto Cap 104-1018, and Denim Hat | Otto Cap 18-204 can expose you to chemicals including BBP and/or Lead, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Any Printful shipment with these products going to a destination in California includes a warning on the packing slip, notifying the recipient of the presence and potential effects of these chemicals.
Nevertheless, you're responsible for informing your customers about the chemicals before they make a purchase. For more information about your responsibilities in relation to Proposition 65 go to https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/.
