California EPA’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has announced that, effective January 31, 2014, trichloroethylene will be listed as known to the state to cause reproductive toxicity for purposes of Proposition 65 (Prop. 65). According to OEHHA, the listing is “based on formal identification by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), an authoritative body, that the chemical causes reproductive toxicity (develop- mental and male reproductive endpoints).”The chemical is used as a solvent for a variety of organic materials and was used historically in coffee decaffein- ation and the preparation of extracts from hops and spices.
