    I used to work for a chemical company and there was a special hazzard label for exports to America. Everything causes cancer in California, who'd want to live in such a dangerous environment ?

    This is actually part of my job.... smh
    I do environmental regulatory compliance for 2 large metal finishing operations.
    Proposition 65 is making the lives of every manufacturer a living Hell.....
    The deal is that nobody can tell you exactly when you need to have a warning label, so they put one on everything just to be safe.

    Some of the items on the list, are seriously bad actors that you shouldn't be near...
    Some are things like the metal Nickel, which is more things around you than you can imagine...

    Here's a link to the current list, (which is expanded every year, BTW..........)

    https://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/proposition-65-list

    Be careful out there...


    **EDIT**

    To be fair here, the European Union has a few programs of their own...
    REACH, RoHS I, II, and III come to mind...

    These are also about as much fun complying with as doing your taxes...

    Oh, that made me laugh out loud. Of course, you realise the warning labels on the warning labels may need warning labels ...
