California Proposition 65
California Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to California residents about exposure to chemicals that are believed by the state to cause cancer, e.g. wood dust, leather dust, acrylamide (commonly found in roasted coffee). As a manufacturer, we are required to inform the public of the possibility of the presence of these chemicals listed in Proposition 65. At Safavieh we test every product annually to ensure that they are safe to use and compliant with the most current voluntary standards and federal regulations. Every Safavieh product meets current CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) and CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) standards.
