A 60-day notice of violation that alleges occupational exposures to styrene may be one of the very few cases in recent years that allege airborne exposures of Proposition 65 chemicals and substances to the chemical.
In fact, the scarcity of alleged, occupational exposures under Proposition 65 is harder to find then a herd of unicorns.
The alleged violation claims that Cambro Manufacturing Company of Huntington Beach has released styrene emissions from the facility since 2017 styrene and that The Facility’s operations release styrene emissions
into the air, exposing residents living and working within the Huntington
Beach neighborhood pictured below. The noticing party claims that the primary route of exposure
for the violations is inhalation when residents inhale the air that has been
contaminated with the styrene released from the Facility operated by Cambro’s operations
No clear and reasonable warning is provided regarding the carcinogenic
hazards of styrene, said The noticing Party, Oakland based Center for Environmental Health(CEH).
CEH added that the toxic air emissions are present in a 0.1-mile radius of Cambro facility.
Facility’s that emit or release Proposition 65 listed chemicals must provide a clear and reasonable warning to alert persons near the facility that it can expose persons in the vicinity of the facility that inhales the emissions.
