CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65
We at LAUDA care about the health and safety of our customers and take these inquiries seriously.
You may find a label on our product packaging like the warning label below.
This warning is in accordance with Proposition 65, which is aimed to notify you our products may contain one of the chemicals listed on Prop 65. Proposition 65 does not ban the sale of products containing these chemicals but instead requires warnings on any product packaging or literature with the product.
Please note that a Proposition 65 warning does not mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements. In fact, the California government has clarified that a Proposition 65 warning “is not the same as a regulatory decision that a product is ‘safe’ or ‘unsafe.’” Many of these chemicals have been used in everyday products for years without documented harm.
California’s Proposition 65 entitles consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels.
Companies selling products in California that contain any listed chemicals must present the following warning:
For constant temperature equipment, process chillers, shakers, water stills, analytical instruments and their associated spare parts: Using this product can expose you to chemicals including lead and lead compounds, which are known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive harm.
For Kryo 30, Refrifluid 1 and Refrifluid 5: Using this product can expose you to chemicals including Ethylene Glycol, which are known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive harm.
