What’s the deal with Prop 65?

As a California-based supplier, Origaudio is adapting to changes to the Prop-65 law that requires clear warning labels on products that may cause cancer or reproductive harm. We want to provide an in-depth description on what it is, and what we’re doing to protect our customers in compliance with the law. But don’t worry, we’ll try to keep this s i m p l e 🙂

What on earth is this Proposition?

Prop 65 is a California regulation that requires businesses, like us, to provide warnings to customers about chemicals over a certain level that may cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. This warning label allows customers to make more informed decisions about the products they buy.

What are the harmful chemicals all about?

The chemicals that require Prop 65 labeling are a mix of naturally occurring and synthetic. Many of these compounds are found commonly in pesticides, household cleaning products, or manufacturing and construction industries. A product with any trace of the harmful chemicals (identified by the OEHHA) is required to have a “clear and reasonable” warning label on it. Some of our plastics contain chemicals on this list, hence the stickers on our polybags and the notices listed on our website.

How are we keeping you safe?

Our top priority has always been and will always be to create safe products. We work closely with our factories overseas to ensure everything we manufacture is safe and built to last. We are in the process of testing all of our products for compliance.

Please note: To protect ourselves and our customers, we are currently displaying the Prop65 warning label across our entire website. Although many products we offer are compliant, the plastic polybag they come packaged in is not.

Should you have any more questions regarding Prop65, our compliant products, or how we are protecting our customers please email ask@origaudio.com.
