The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is modifying the listing of alcoholic beverages as shown in the table below as known to the state to cause cancer under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65).  This action is being taken pursuant to the “Labor Code” listing mechanism. 

The basis for the modification of the listing was described in a public notice published in the August 3, 2018 issue of the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2018, No. 31-Z).  The title of the notice was “Notice of Intent to Modify a Listing by the Labor Code Mechanism: Alcoholic Beverages.”  The publication of the notice initiated a 30-day public comment period.  OEHHA received six public comments on this change. The comments and OEHHA’s responses are posted with this Notice of Modification.
