Proposition 65 - Stainless Steel

Question: If a part is made of pure stainless steel, is it out of scope of Proposition 65?

Answer: Potentially, yes. Chromium in stainless steel is typically Cr0, meaning that it is in its pure elemental form. Stainless steels are considered inherently non-hazardous, with many grades approved for food contact.
