California Code, Health and Safety Code - HSC § 25249.14

The Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development shall post in a conspicuous location on its Internet Web site, and include with any informational materials provided to businesses relating to a business's obligations under state law, a disclaimer that states the following:

Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, requires businesses to provide a clear and reasonable warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to chemicals that are known to the state to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm.  It is important to know that a product that receives certification from the United States Food and Drug Administration, or another federal agency or state agency, is not necessarily exempt from California requirements for chemical exposure warnings.  Businesses should be aware of the levels of harmful chemicals in their products and of applicable Proposition 65 requirements.  For more information on Proposition 65 and how to comply with its requirements, please visit
