Why is this warning on Kvaser products?
Products with any amount of substances covered by Proposition 65 — even at levels that may not be harmful — must carry this warning unless proven to have “no significant risk” of exposure.
Since almost all electronic products contain 1 or more of the chemicals listed under Proposition 65, this warning is provided to make sure our customers stay informed.
How do I know that Kvaser products are safe?
For Kvaser products, the exposure may be well within the “no significant risk” range; however, the Proposition 65 warning label is provided on our products in order to help you make an informed purchase decision.
According to the California government, “The fact that a product bears a Proposition 65 warning does not mean by itself that the product is unsafe.”
They also explain, “You could think of Proposition 65 more as a ‘right to know’ law than a pure product safety law.” (http://www.p65warnings.ca.gov)
