Insider Scoop: Amazon's Wicked Games (Part Two)
Date 8th Sep 2021
Have you seen the proposition 65 warning on the bottom of goods, on the tag of an item of clothing, or posted at a fast food drive-thru?
This is a Proposition 65 warning and the state of California requires businesses to display it so consumers can be aware of significant exposures to unsafe chemicals.
Prop. 65 became law in 1986 and since then, California has published a list of over 900 chemicals that have been scientifically proven to contribute to serious illnesses.
Maybe you're not from California or you've never seen a publicly posted prop. 65 warning, but it is the law and no one is exempt from abiding by it.
Even the happiest place on earth, Disneyland, displays the prop. 65 warning on their churro carts, it's true!
Fans of our Insider Scoop's can probably guess where we're headed...
Amazon Products Aren't Meeting Prop.
We'll have you know that even though California is Amazon's biggest market, many Amazon products directly violate prop. 65 standards by containing serious illness-causing chemicals and not advertising it with a warning.
The reason as to why Amazon gets away with this is still unknown. Their gigantic network of third-party foreign sellers is the predominant reasoning, but because they're under the Amazon umbrella, they deserve to be held responsible.
... This Is Completely Illegal, Right?
How is it possible that no one is stopping Amazon from selling inefficacious, harmful, and illegal products? Exposing millions of Amazon customers to serious illness causing chemicals is not only unscrupulous, it poses a national health crisis.
