Recently, there have been several 60-Day Notices filed for electronics cases, such as cell phone, phone charging, ear bud and gaming controller cases. The claimed violation is that the products named in the Notices contain the chemical Bisphenol A (BPA), but are not labeled with the required warning.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical known to the State of California to cause female reproductive toxicity.
The required warning label is as follows:
It should be noted that there was a settlement in 2018 for BPA in cell phone cases. In that settlement, the Injunctive Relief specified that cases which have any component that exposes consumers to more than 3 ppm of BPA must have the applicable warning label.
