Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. The proposition protects the state's drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals.

Proposition 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 chemicals are above certain threshold levels. A Proposition 65 warning does not mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements.

Certain Kanguru products may contain the following warning message on the product packaging:

WARNING: Cancer or Reproductive harm
