Two Additions to CA Prop 65 Substance List
Substances Known to State of CA to Cause Cancer
Over the past several weeks, two substances have been added to the List of Chemicals Known to Cause Cancer under California Prop 65.
Companies subject to Prop 65 are required to provide a warning before exposing anyone to a listed chemical, and are prohibited from discharging listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.
The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) made the following additions:
|Effective Date||Chemical||CAS No.||Endpoint||Listing Mechanism|
|September 30, 2016||Furfuryl alcohol||98-00-0||Cancer||AB (US EPA)|
|October 21, 2016||Pentachlorophenol and by-products of its synthesis (complex mixture)||---||Cancer||AB (NTP)|
Information on the criteria used to classify each substance and the most updated list of substances can be found on the OEHHA website. The last prior addition to the list was in May 2016.
