Product safety — 36 more California Proposition 65 notices issued, new record set only five months into 2011

Thirty-six new "60-day" notices were filed last week alleging that brands and retailers sold handbags, purses, clutches and tote bags (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4; Notice 5; Notice 6; Notice 7), belts (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3), fashion accessories (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4; Notice 5), wallets (Notice 1), luggage tags (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4), cosmetic and toiletries cases (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4; Notice 5; Notice 6; Notice 7; Notice 8), footwear (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4; Notice 5), clothing (Notice 1; Notice 2) and jewelry (Notice 1), in California that contained phthalates, lead and cadmium in violation of California Proposition 65 (Prop 65). The 36 new notices brings this year's total to 241 cases involving apparel, footwear, travel goods and other fashion-related accessories, exceeding last year's record total (208), only five full months into the year. TGA has included these notices, along with every other travel goods and other fashion-related notice for the past three years, in the TGA Prop 65 "60 Day Notice" running list. TGA will continue to update this list on a regular basis. 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.
