California Proposition 65
This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Attention California residents: California’s Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels. We know you’re concerned about product safety, and Treehut takes all necessary steps to comply with all applicable safety and health requirements.
On Treehut.co, we provide a Prop 65 link under product information for each item that requires the Prop 65 warning.
In late 2016, California adopted new regulations relating to the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 – also known as “Proposition 65.” The Act and its new regulations update warning requirements for consumer products sold to customers in California that contain certain chemicals. Proposition 65 is a far-reaching law that applies to any company that operates in California and sells products in California. Prop 65 requires us to post a warning on any product that contains or may contain any of more than 800 elements that the California Air Resources Board considers harmful. Since the products we sell contain some materials such as small amounts of nickel in the clasp and adjustment knob, we have to comply with this law and post the warning on our website. Again, we assure you that we take every precaution to make our watches safe and have had no reports of the hard associated with Proposition 65.
