CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65
What is the California Proposition 65 Warning? California Proposition 65 requires warning labels on products that could possibly contain any of the more than 800 chemicals or ingredients that the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) considers harmful. This list includes a multitude of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals. The listed chemicals may also be used in manufacturing and construction, or they may be byproducts of chemical processes.
Since there is always a possibility that our products or packaging materials could have been exposed to some of the hundreds of ingredients listed in Prop 65, we must include this warning below on select products: "WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Antimony trioxide, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer, and Ethylene glycol, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov."
The products that require this warning are pads, mattresses, and products that come with cushions or pad. In the case of cradles, mini cribs, and changers, the warning is regarding the included pad, and not the furniture. We can assure you that all our cribs and wooden furniture are tested to meet all required CPSC and ASTM standards, which include testing for formaldehyde, phthalates, heavy metals such as lead, and other at-risk substances.
As a family company committed to safety, we test all our products on a yearly basis to ensure that they are safe to use. Our products meet current CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) standards and CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) 101 and 108. These acts regulate lead and phthalate levels in children’s products, and all our products are lead and phthalate safe.
We are compliant with the most current voluntary standards and federal regulations, and even have our own safety metrics that go well beyond State and Federal requirements. Please rest assured that at DaVinci, we will always continue to strive for the very best in quality and safety for your family.
