New California Proposition 65 Notices
February 25, 2015 – New “60-day” notices have been issued in the past few weeks alleging that brands and retailers sold wallets, handbags and clutches made with leather, vinyl or imitation leather materials (Notice 1), belts made with leather, vinyl or imitation leather materials (Notice 1) and other products in California that contained Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP), or lead 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.
