The State of
California has enacted the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement
Act of 1986 generally referred to as "Proposition 65." Proposition 65
is a far reaching 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 warning labels on any product
that contains or
may contain any of 700-plus elements that the
California Air Resources Board considers harmful. Many of the elements listed
under Proposition 65 have been routinely used in everyday consumer items for
years without documented harm.

The potential penalties for not complying with
Proposition 65 are significant. As a result of these potential penalties,
Douglas Quikut and many other manufacturers have elected to provide the
Proposition 65 notice out of an abundance of caution in order to avoid the
potential for liability. For more information about Proposition 65 visit:
