Kohler Kitchen and Bath Frequently Asked Questions about California Proposition 65.
Q1: What is Prop 65?
A1: Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a California ballot initiative in 1986. Among other requirements, Prop 65 requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to a list of specific chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. If the product exposes the customer to one or more of those chemicals on the list, the business may be required to inform the consumer depending on the level of exposure.
Q2: Where can I find more information on Prop 65?
A2: More information can be found at oehha.ca.gov

A3: Kohler Co. continuously evaluates our products to ensure they comply with all state and federal regulations, including California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (also known as “Proposition 65”). Where required, Kohler provides necessary warnings.
Q4: Why doesn’t Kohler Kitchen & Bath product have Prop 65 labels?
