Our experience in Proposition 65 litigation has helped us reach numerous settlements for our clients and has assisted in the protection of California residents from products containing toxic chemicals.
In 1986, California voters approved an initiative to address their growing concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals. Proposition 65 requires businesses such as manufacturers, retailers, and distributers to notify California citizens about potential exposure to harmful chemicals. The attorneys at Sy and Smith work hard to ensure that California citizens are properly notified so they can take appropriate measures to protect themselves from exposure to these chemicals.
California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) determines which chemicals should be placed on the Proposition 65 list, which contains a wide range of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. Our knowledgeable team is available to answer any questions regarding Proposition 65 or related matters.
