You may notice that we include a warning label on all of our Parts and accessories. We are providing Prop 65 warning labels (as by law) to simply inform consumers that the product contains chemicals on the State of California’s Prop 65 list. Plastics, Sheet Metal, Interior Vinyls, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Steel, and Brass are all known to contain levels of lead which could cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Even though a product may be found to contain a Proposition 65-listed chemical, it does not mean that the use of the product will cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Nor does it mean that a product is unsafe. The label simply ensures that Firebird Central, LLC is in compliance with the State of California’s Prop 65 law for warning label requirements.
In 1986, California voters approved the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act (known as “Proposition 65”). Proposition 65 is a "Right to Know" statute; its purpose is to make sure people are aware, before they purchase, that the product they come into contact with contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. The statute requires a warning label even if the amount of the chemical is minuscule.
The State of California has listed over 900 chemicals that must be disclosed under Prop 65. The list, which is updated annually, includes a wide variety of chemicals that can be found in many consumer products, such as kitchen utensils, footwear and handbags, exercise equipment, photo and scrap book albums, luggage, and many other products (even foods and beverages).
