Dear Valued Customer:
Michael Healy Designs, Inc. would like to inform our customers that our cast metal door knockers, doorbell ringers and outdoor art contain small amounts of lead, a chemical listed in California’s Safe Drinking Water & Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. Commonly referred to as Proposition 65, this Act establishes a list of chemicals known by the State of California to present a risk of cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
Brass and bronze alloys contain a small amount of lead which facilitates the flow of the molten metal during the casting process. Michael Healy Designs, Inc. believes that the chance of exposure to lead through the normal and intended use of the products listed are low to none, but has made this declaration and labeled the affected products in order to assure compliance with California law.
More information about Proposition 65 can be found at P65Warnings.ca.gov
