The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly referred to as “Proposition 65,” requires entities doing business in California to provide warnings to consumers about significant exposures to chemicals that have been identified by the state to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm. In 2016, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) promulgated new consumer warning regulations that took effect on Aug. 30, 2018.
It is important that anyone selling, supplying or distributing products in California re-evaluate what they are doing to comply with Proposition 65. Lightning Labels, the all-digital custom label manufacturer based in Denver, CO, USA, is a trusted name in Prop 65 warning labels, working with thousands of customers since the regulations first passed into law. From food and beverages to petroleum derivatives and even pieces of furniture, countless items are required to have Prop 65 labels in California.
"We're ready and able to help companies get in compliance and avoid legal consequences," says Lightning Labels Director of Business Development AnneMarie Campbell. Lightning Labels offers Prop 65 stickers in all sizes and shapes, and our state of the art printing processes enable turnaround times as short as 48 to 72 hours following artwork approval.
Cannabis Industry Should Take Note
California's medical and adult-use cannabis producers should pay attention to Prop 65 requirements. These companies, already dealing with a slew of industry-specific labeling and chain-of-custody requirements, should not neglect their Prop 65 labels.
Fortunately, Lightning Labels can be of assistance with all labeling needs in the sector, having helped cannabis cultivators remain compliant and competitive since the very beginnings of legalized medical use. Lightning Labels offers custom labels with quick turnaround times and flexible order sizes to ensure brands can observe the new rules with minimum disruption to their production.
