THE “WARNING” LABELS IN CALIFORNIA. WHAT DOES IT MEAN ABOUT THE HATS YOU’RE WEARING?! (Prop65)
You may have heard, or seen the “P65WARNING” labels pasted on many hats sold across California, specifically hats sold in California. Proposition 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
But what does that mean about the hats you plan to buy. Many manufacturers, most but not all manufacturers keep the majority of their production process a secret. This includes chemicals used by US manufacturers to create your hat. And while many chemicals-in-the-raw may have been linked to cause cancer, is their a problem with wearing these hats? No!
Currently their are no know complications brought about from the buying, storing, or wearing of any hat made in the America or that you buy from us at Vintage Hatters.
So keep calm and wear on! The labels are their to keep you in the know.
