In 1986, California voters approved Proposition 65, an initiative to address their growing concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals. That initiative, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, requires the State of California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. The regulation also requires companies who conduct business operations in California to provide warnings when they knowingly expose residents to listed chemicals above safe harbor levels.
This list currently includes more than 900 chemicals. Proposition 65 does not ban or restrict the sale or use of chemicals on the list, but rather is intended to help Californians make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals from the products they use and the places they go.
Please note that the use of Weller Truck Parts products may expose residents to substances which are known in the state of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm, and Weller® is providing customers the following warning:
Attention California Residents: WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm – www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
Weller Truck Parts takes steps to ensure these hazards do not reach the end user or customer including draining units of oils and fluids before shipment. Weller also relies on original manufacturer labeling for vendor products which necessitate a Prop 65 warning and maintains a record of such products. As a company we are committed to transparency regarding these products and will, when requested, provide SDS, packaging, and/or vendor information regarding products in question. Further information concerning the health effects of listed chemicals, as well as ways to reduce or eliminate exposure to them, can be found at The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment’s (OEHHA) Proposition 65 warnings website (www.P65Warnings.ca.gov).
