In our last post, we looked at the new, general regulations for consumer product warnings under Proposition 65. There are also new warning regulations for specific types of product, and we start looking at them today.
Product-Specific Warning Regulations
The current regulations have product-specific warning provisions for food, alcoholic beverages, prescription drugs and BPA in canned and bottled foods and beverages (a temporary BPA interim regulation issued in April, 2016). The new regulations add product-specific warnings for dental care exposure, raw wood products, furniture, non-passenger diesel engines, vehicles, recreational vessels and amusement parks.

The warning is to be contained in a box.
