Proposition 65: Which Substance Name to Use in Warnings?

Question: My company produces a product containing chloroform, which is also known as trichloromethane. Which term should we use on the Proposition 65 warning label? May we use whichever term we prefer?

Answer: On Proposition 65 warning labels, you should always use the substance name as it appears on the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment’s list of Chemicals Considered or Listed Under Proposition 65. In this case, that means you should use the term chloroform.
