STATE OF CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING EXPLANATION
KLM Performance Inc. applies warning labels either on our product(s), or the packaging containing our product(s) regarding CA Prop 65. This warning is part of our effort to comply with the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (known as “Proposition 65”). The California Proposition 65 list now has over 800 Chemicals used in the production of goods, which is administered by California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), a part of the California Environmental Protection Agency. The list includes naturally occurring and man-made chemicals. Proposition 65 warnings can be seen for a wide variety of everyday consumer products, including Automotive Performance products, and warnings can be seen posted throughout California in a variety of establishments such as hotels, restaurants, automobile dealerships/repair shops, and retail stores just to name a few.
The warning does not mean that the products sold by KLM Performance will necessarily cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. To comply with the requirements of Proposition 65, the following warning will be put on every product sold.
While we believe that the products offered by KLM Performance are not harmful when used as designed, and we rely on our suppliers and manufacturers to help with this effort, we also provide these warnings to comply with Proposition 65.
What is California Proposition 65?
Proposition 65 is a law and applies to any company that operates in California, sells products in California, or manufactures products that may be sold in or brought into California.
Proposition 65 requires warnings to accompany any product that contains or may contain any of the chemicals appearing on the list administered by California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), a part of the California Environmental Protection Agency.

Why has KLM Performance decided to provide a warning?
Proposition 65 imposes strict penalties for noncompliance. While California establishes “safe harbor numbers” for listed chemicals, the costs of individually testing products that KLM Performance distributes is prohibitive (particularly when the list of chemicals is so expansive and subject to change on an annual basis).
As a result of the steep penalties and because there is no penalty for providing an unnecessary warning, KLM Performance provides the Proposition 65 notice out of an abundance of caution.
We at KLM Performance rely upon the manufacturers to clearly illustrate the warnings on their products.
