New California Proposition 65 Notices Issued

April 28, 2016 – New “60-day” notices have been issued alleging that brands and retailers sold handbags (Notice 1Notice 2), footwear (Notice 1Notice 2Notice 3Notice 4Notice 5), and other items in California that contained Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Di-n-Butyl Phthalate (DBP), Diisononyl phthalate (DINP), and/or lead in violation of a California law known as Proposition 65 (Prop 65). The notices serve as intent to bring lawsuits 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.
