About Proposition 65 

Proposition 65, or the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, is a California law that requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to potentially dangerous chemicals.  This applies to items Californians purchase as well as to products in their homes or workplaces or chemicals that are released into the environment. The intent behind Proposition 65 is to help Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals. To do this, Proposition 65 also requires the state of California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list must be updated at least once a year and has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987. When a company issues a Proposition 65 warning, it means one of two things: (1) the business has evaluated the exposure and has concluded that it exceeds the "no significant risk level"; or (2) the business has chosen to provide a warning simply based on its knowledge about the presence of a listed chemical without attempting to evaluate the exposure. 

Radius Outfitters - Proposition 65 Warning 

Radius Outfitters has chosen to provide a warning based on the potential presence of one or more chemicals listed on the Proposition 65 list. We believe that our products are completely safe for consumer use and if any Prop 65 listed chemicals were to be present, we believe they would be within the safe harbor levels for exposure as published by Prop 65. 

Some components of our products may include various materials like, ABS, PVC and EVA.  These materials as a whole are not listed under Prop 65 list of harmful chemicals, but the identified precursor chemicals which make up these materials like Butadiene, Styrene, Ethylene and Chloride are listed.  In some cases these finished plastics may contain low levels of the chemical in the plastic.  Therefore, out of an abundance of caution we decide to adopt this marking to alleviate any legal issues that could arise from an improperly marked product sold in California.
