New California Proposition 65 notices issued
Eleven new "60-day" notices have been issued alleging that brands and retailers sold backpacks (Notice 1, Notice 2), luggage tags (Notice 1), cosmetic bags (Notice 1), sandals (Notice 1, Notice 2, Notice 3), zipper pulls (Notice 1), footwear (Notice 1), and jewelry (Notice 1, Notice 2) in California that contained phthalates, cadmium, and lead in violation of California's Proposition 65 (Prop 65). The notices serve as intent to bring a lawsuit against the recipients alleging that the products sold contain certain chemicals in violation of California law Proposition 65 (Prop 65). TGA has included these notices in the TGA Prop 65 "60 Day Notice" running list. TGA will continue to update this list on a regular basis to help catalog the effects of this law on the travel goods industry. For more information on Prop 65, please go to the Prop 65 page on the TGA website or contact TGA's Nate Herman at 703-797-9062.
