Product safety — 52 more California Proposition 65 notices issued

A record 52 new "60-day" notices have been issued in the last two weeks, alleging that brands and retailers sold imitation cosmetic and toiletries cases (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4; Notice 5; Notice 6), coin purses (Notice 1), handbags, purses, clutches and tote bags (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4; Notice 5; Notice 6), belts (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4; Notice 5; Notice 6; Notice 7; Notice 8; Notice 9; Notice 10; Notice 11; Notice 12; Notice 13), fashion accessories (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4; Notice 5; Notice 6; Notice 7; Notice 8; Notice 9; Notice 10; Notice 11; Notice 12; Notice 13; Notice 14; Notice 15; Notice 16; Notice 17), leather (Notice 1), footwear (Notice 1; Notice 2; Notice 3; Notice 4), jewelry (Notice 1; Notice 2) and zippers (Notice 1; Notice 2) in California that contained phthalates, lead and cadmium in violation of California Proposition 65 (Prop 65). The 52 new notices brings this year's total to 205 cases involving travel goods and other fashion-related products, only three below last year's record total (208), only five 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.
