In 1986, California voters approved the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act known as Proposition 65. The purpose of Proposition 65 warning is to ensure that people are informed about exposure to such chemicals by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive harm.
The warning does not necessarily mean that Nextbase products cause cancer or reproductive harm. Furthermore, a Proposition 65 warning does not mean a product is in violation of any product and/or safety standards or requirements. In fact, the California government has clarified and stated: “the fact that a product bears a Proposition 65 warning does not mean by itself that the product is unsafe.” The government has also explained, “You could think of Proposition 65 more as a ‘right to know’ law than a pure product safety law.”
Nextbase has chosen to provide the Proposition 65 warning statement as some of our products contain one or more of the chemicals listed under Proposition 65, without attempting to evaluate the level of exposure as not all of the listed chemicals provide exposure limit requirements.
We believe that our products are safe to use and do not cause harm when used as intended. We have provided this warning statement to comply with this California right-to-know law.
With Nextbase products, the exposure may be negligible or well within the “no significant risk” range. Furthermore, Nextbase has chosen to provide the Proposition 65 notice on its products as an abundance caution.
