Bevacizumab added to Proposition 65 List

The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment has updated the list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity to include Bevacizumab. This chemical is sold under the trade name Avastin and is used as a cancer treatment.

Bevacizumab has been added to the list based on a formal requirement by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that the chemical be identified or labeled as causing reproductive toxicity (developmental and female endpoints). 

Businesses are required to provide a clear and reasonable warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to Prop65 listed chemicals one year after being added to the list.
