Proposition 65, officially the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, is a law that requires warnings be provided to California consumers when they might be exposed to chemicals identified by California as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity. The warnings are intended to help California consumers make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals from the products they use. The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) administers the Proposition 65 program and publishes the listed chemicals, which includes more than 850 chemicals. In August 2016, OEHHA adopted new regulations, effective on August 30, 2018, which change the information required in Proposition 65 warnings.

We are providing the following warning for products linked to this page:

WHY DO WE PROVIDE THIS NOTICE? At Burke's Naturals, our commitment to compliance with applicable laws, including Proposition 65, is unwavering. We have chosen to include the Proposition 65 notice as a proactive measure to ensure compliance with California regulations. It's important to note that the presence of this warning should not be construed as an indication that our products pose any harm. Additionally, a Proposition 65 warning should not be equated with a violation of product-safety standards or requirements. In fact, the California government explicitly clarifies that "the mere presence of a Proposition 65 warning does not inherently suggest that the product is unsafe." Furthermore, they describe Proposition 65 as more of a "right to know" law than a strict product safety regulation.
