California Proposition 65

California Proposition 65

Attention California residents:

California's Proposition 65 (Prop 65) entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels. We know you're concerned about product safety and Target takes all necessary steps to comply with all applicable safety and health requirements.

On Target.com, we provide a Prop 65 link under Other Info for each item that requires the Prop 65 warning. If a Prop 65 link does not appear in the Other Info section for the product you wish to purchase, the supplier of the product has indicated that it does not require the Prop 65 warning.
