I received a Prop 65 warning at checkout. What does that mean?

California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, California Health & Safety Code § 25249.5 et seq., commonly referred to as “Proposition 65,” is a California State Law since 1986 that regulates the presence of certain chemical substances found in products sold in the State of California, or present in the workplace in the State of California. 

If you live in California, you will see the following message appear:
