During the course of 2016, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has added 16 new chemicals to the Proposition 65 List.  Companies doing business in California must provide Prop 65 warnings for all listed products starting one year after the date a chemical is listed. The most controversial addition in 2016 involved styrene, a common chemical used to make latex, synthetic rubber and polystyrene resins, which are used to make plastic packaging, disposable containers and insulation. Other notable additions were furfuryl alcohol, an organic solvent used in textile printing and as an ingredient in alkaline paint strippers and other chemical products, and tetrachlorvinphos, an insecticide frequently used in flea and tick products for pets.
