Prop 65

Prop 65 Warning

What is Proposition 65?

In 1986, the voters of California passed Proposition 65 also known as the Safe Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, which applies not only to water, but also to consumer goods sold in California. Proposition 65 requires the state of California to publish and maintain a list of chemicals knows to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. The list is updated periodically and currently contains over 800 substances. The most recent list and other Prop 65 information are available on OEHHA’s website:

We are required by law under the California Proposition 65 to post warnings on certain products that, when used, would result in exposure to any one or more than 800 substances recognized by the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity over the above extremely low limits as set by the Proposition. Civil for violation of the Act is $2,500 per day, and enforcement is permitted by private individuals (AKA bounty hunters) who are entitled to keep 25% of what they can collect through lawsuits.

Proposition 65 Warning include any products sold by N.Y.L.A. Shoes Inc. in light of the fact that one of more of the chemicals identified on may be present in such products.

To our California customers, in accordance with Proposition 65, we issue the following warning: "This product contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, or birth defects or other reproductive harm."
