Codeage California Proposition 65

Proposition 65 Warning for California Consumers

California's Proposition 65 (commencing with section 25249.5 of the Health and Safety Code) requires that producers, manufacturers and retailers of certain products provide California consumers with special warnings for a product that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, if the California consumer is exposed to those chemicals in concentrations above certain thresholds, as established and updated by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA).

Types of Chemicals and Products on the Proposition 65 List

Currently, the Proposition 65 list includes more than 900 different chemicals, and is updated at least once annually.

Why is Codeage Affected by Proposition 65?

Chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and reproductive toxicity are present in dietary supplements, grocery items (e.g., coffee, fried and baked goods), and many other common products. As a result, some or all of the products you are ordering from Codeage may contain one or more of these chemicals. 

Given the requirements of Proposition 65, Codeage ensures compliance by notifying consumers if a supplement contains a Proposition 65-listed chemical above the established threshold, provided the chemical is not naturally occurring in an ingredient. We prioritize safety and transparency, thus including the Proposition 65 warning when necessary.

Are Products with a Proposition 65 Warning Notice Unsafe?

A Proposition 65 warning does not signify that a product is unsafe. Instead, it informs California consumers about the presence of a listed chemical above the applicable Proposition 65 threshold, enabling them to make informed purchasing decisions in accordance with the standards set by the OEHHA.

Furthermore, the threshold for triggering a Proposition 65 warning is much lower than the safety levels set by other agencies such as the FDA, EPA, WHO, and other health organizations. Nonetheless, we adhere strictly to these regulations, which is why you may see a Proposition 65 warning on a Codeage product, where applicable.
