New California Proposition 65 notices issued
Ten new "60-day" notices have been issued alleging that brands and retailers sold footwear (Notice 1), (Notice 2), bags (Notice 1), (Notice 2), (Notice 3), (Notice 4), belts (Notice 1), (Notice 2), (Notice 3), and hats (Notice 1) in California that contained phthalates and lead in violation of California Proposition 65 (Prop 65). The notices serve as intent to bring a lawsuit against the recipients alleging that the products sold in California contain certain chemicals in violation of a California law known as Proposition 65 (Prop 65). 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 to help catalog the damaging 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.
