California consumers will receive new protections against toxic materials routinely used by Chinese manufacturers in everyday goods thanks to a settlement reached yesterday in Santa Clara County Superior Court, according to an attorney who negotiated the agreement.

The agreement, approved by Judge James Stoelker, requires DAP Inc., a large Chinese manufacturer, to reformulate consumer products to comply with California’s Proposition 65 right-to-know toxics law.

DAP Inc. manufactures millions of handle grips used on hand tools and tape measures that are sold throughout the United States by TARGET Stores. Those products were found to include the reproductive toxicant di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP), which is regulated under Proposition 65. The manufacturer has now agreed to remove the hazardous chemical.

To bring your chemical products into compliance with California Prop 65 and US federal Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regululations please contact Nexreg Compliance for more information.
