The notices serve as intent to bring lawsuits against the recipients of the notices that sold these products. On a related note, on August 30, 2018, California imposed new Proposition 65 warning label requirements. TGA recently published a new member-only tool for TGA members on how to comply with the new California Prop 65 warning label requirements.
