California Prop 65 Information
California’s Proposition 65 requires the state to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer and birth defects, or other reproductive harm. It also entitles California consumers to proper warnings for products that contain those chemicals if products expose consumers to such substances above certain levels.
Established in 1987, the list of chemicals must be updated each year and now includes approximately 800 substances.
Wood dust was added to the list in 2010, and therefore, all wood products sold in California must bear the Prop 65 warning.
Cali Bamboo prioritizes customer safety above all else and employs strict quality control to ensure superior raw materials, adhesives, and techniques are used throughout the manufacturing of all building products.
