Why do Bertazzoni products feature such a warning?
Some of our products – as well as those from other appliance manufacturers – feature the following warning notice
WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm.
This notice has been made mandatory as part of a 1986 regulation passed in California, the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also known as Proposition 65.
The warning does not indicate that Bertazzoni products cause cancer or reproductive harm or are non compliant with any federal, state or local product safety requirement. The state of California has unmistakably stated that “the fact that a product bears a Proposition 65 warning does not mean by itself that the product is unsafe. Proposition 65 is a right-to- know law not a product safety law.” For details click here.
While we strongly believe that Bertazzoni products are not harmful when used as specified, we are obliged to post this warning as a consequence of this California law.
Why does Bertazzoni include this notice on the packaging of its products and in the Use & Care manuals?
Bertazzoni and virtually all other manufacturers have decided to provide a Proposition 65 notice out of an abundance of caution in order to avoid potential liabilities. Penalties for non-compliance are substantial
Why are products sold outside of California also labeled with this warning notice?
Bertazzoni products are sold throughout the US and Canada. It is virtually impossible to monitor and track which products are sold or transported into California. In order to comply with Proposition 65, we have decided to label all our products with the warning notice, regardless of where they are sold or installed.
