New California Proposition 65 Notices Issued

New California Proposition 65 Notices Issued

New “60-day” notices have been issued alleging that brands and retailers sold travel accessories (Notice 1) and other items in California that contained lead, di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP), diisononyl phthalate (DINP), Di-isodecyl phthalate (DIDP), and/or di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP) in violation of California’s Prop 65. The notices serve as intent to bring lawsuits against the recipients that sold these products. 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, 202-853-9351.
