California EPA’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has added diisononyl phthalate—a plasticizer used in food contact mate-rials—to the list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer. OEHHA’s Carcinogen Identification Committee determined that “the chemical was clearly shown, through scientifically valid testing according to generally accepted principles, to cause cancer.”The addition, made under the “state’s qualified expert” mechanism of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforce-ment Act of 1986 (Prop. 65), takes effect December 20, 2013. OEHHA will next set a safe exposure level for the chemical. See OEHHA News Release, December 12, 2013; Bloomberg BNA Product Safety & Liability Reporter, December 13, 2013.
