New California Proposition 65 Notices Issued

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. For more information on Prop 65, contact TGA’s Nate Herman, 703-797-9062.
