Proposition 65 Information
WARNING: Weber Knapp Company ergonomic products may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
What is California Proposition 65?
In 1986, California voters approved an initiative to address their growing concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals. That initiative became the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, which we know by its original name of Proposition 65.
What does Proposition 65 require?
Proposition 65 requires businesses to notify California residents about chemicals in the products they purchase or that are released into the environment. By providing this information, Proposition 65 allows California residents to make informed decisions before exposing anyone to a listed material and also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.
Why does Weber Knapp include this warning on its products?
Some Weber Knapp products may contain small traces of one or more chemicals on the California Proposition 65 list. Although there may be little to no risk of exposure, we care about our customers’ safety and hope that the information provided here helps them make informed decisions. It is important to know that even though a product may contain a Proposition 65 listed chemical, it does not mean that the product is unsafe.
Why is this label included on Weber Knapp products that I purchased outside of California?
Weber Knapp products are sold to distributors nationwide. In order to ensure we are compliant with Proposition 65 requirements, we decided to include the warning labels on most ergonomic products regardless of where they are sold or purchased.
