Proposition 65 Listing of Ethylene Glycol (Ingested) (June 2015)

California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) announced the addition of ethylene glycol (ingested) to the Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to the state to cause reproductive toxicity. The listing is effective June 19, 2015. OEHHA’s listing criteria came under the “authoritative bodies” mechanism, which cited the final report by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) Center for Evaluation of Risk to Human Reproduction (CERHR) that ethylene glycol causes reproductive toxicity at high oral doses.
