Proposition 65

Prop 65 Attorneys

Gibbs Law Group’ Prop 65 attorneys have successfully litigated a number of cases on behalf of consumers in the fight against misleading and deceptive product labeling. Misleading labels can pose a number of risks, none more important than the risk of exposure to a toxic or dangerous ingredient that they otherwise could have avoided.

California’s Prop 65 was passed for this very reason—to ensure that consumers can make informed decisions when it comes to exposure to potentially harmful substances. Our false advertising lawyers have considerable experience litigating to ensure consumers’ rights are protected and that deceptive advertising and misleading labeling are halted. Most recently, we filed suit on behalf of consumers alleging that Brazilian Blowout hair product contains formaldehyde despite labeling to the contrary.

California’s Proposition 65

Proposition 65, or the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, is one of several California laws that regulates product advertising and labeling. Prop. 65, requires warnings for a variety of potentially hazardous substances, including potential carcinogens and reproductive toxicants such as:

  • Lead
  • Formaldehyde
  • Benzene
  • Cadmium
  • Erchloroethylene
