New California Proposition 65 Notices
February 11, 2015 – New “60-day” notices have been issued in the past few weeks alleging that brands and retailers sold vinyl/PVC garment bag shoulder strap pads (Notice 1) and vinyl/PVC gloves (Notice 1, Notice 2, Notice 3, Notice 4, Notice 5, Notice 6, Notice 7, Notice 8, Notice 9, Notice 10, Notice 11) in California that contained lead, Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) and Diisononyl phthalate (DINP) in violation of a California law known as Proposition 65 (Prop 65). The notices serve as intent to bring a lawsuit 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, contact TGA’s Nate Herman, 703-797-9062.
