All Techna-Fit’s Direct Customers,
state of California Proposition 65 requires a warning label on any product sold
in the state of California believed to contain cancer-causing chemicals.
California has a list of over 900 chemicals that are listed as potentially
causing cancer. While many of these chemicals are found in common things such
as paint or various plating processes, which would include many products sold
whether or not the levels are high enough to meet the
standards requiring a warning are unknown.
Warning Label is required if “no significant risk” is involved.
criteria for “no significant risk” is as follows:
law defines “no significant risk” as a level of exposure that would cause no more
than 1 extra case of cancer in 100,000 people over a 70-year lifetime. So a
compound can be unlabeled if a person exposed to the substance at the expected level
for 70 years is estimated to have a 1 in 100,000 chance or less of getting
cancer due to that exposure.
the interest of protecting all of our customers against even the remote
possibility of contact with a cancer causing chemical, we will be applying the
Proposition 65 warning labels to ALL of Techna-Fit’s items.
