Also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, California Proposition 65 is a law that requires warning to consumers if a product exposes consumers to a wide variety of chemicals including lead and cadmium. Prop 65 does not ban any product; it simply requires warnings. Prop 65 applies only in California, and covers all products distributed in the state. Please note-AAkron Rule complies with all Federal Regulations concerning chemical contents. The State of California requires significantly stricter standards be met. For additional information, please visit: http://cdn.ppai.org/NR/exeres/1170E8D8-72B3-41C7-8A65-CA76971400F9,frameless.htm
The State of California requires that no person in the course of doing business shall knowingly and intentionally expose any individual to a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity without first giving a clear and reasonable warning.

Any order placed with or received from AAkron, including but not limited to orders placed via catalog, online, phone or mail, shall be deemed effective acceptance of these terms.
