Non California residents
You may have seen the following warning associated with certain Liebherr brand products, as well as on other products purchased from other manufacturers:
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Diisononyl Phthalate (DINP) which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Di-isodecyl Phthalate (DIDP) 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.
What is this warning about?
We believe our products are not harmful when used as designed, we provide this warning as a result of a unique law passed in California in 1986 called “Proposition 65.”
Proposition 65 requires a warning to be included with any product sold in California that can expose a customer to any of the 900-plus chemicals that the State of California regulates.
The purpose of Proposition 65 is to notify consumers that they are being exposed to chemicals that are known to cause cancer and/or reproductive toxicity.
A Proposition 65 warning does not mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements
Proposition 65 does not ban the use of any of these chemicals, but does require warnings to consumers.
Is this product safe to use?
Yes, it is safe to use as instructed. This product and all Liebherr brand products meet federal and state laws (including California’s) for safety and restricted substances.
I purchased this product outside of California. Why are you providing the Proposition 65 warning to me?
Liebherr products are sold throughout the U.S. to retailers with national distribution. Each distribution warehouse can and does serve multiple states, including California so the warnings are included on all products.
