California OEHHA Removes Diaminotoluene (mixed) from Proposition 65 List (November 2015)

California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) removed diaminotoluene (mixed) from Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to cause cancer, due to insufficient evidence. The compound has been listed under Proposition 65 since 1990, but recent review prompted a second look at its status.
After reviewing the evidence, the state’s Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC) determined that only 2,4-diaminotoluene isomers showed sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity. They concluded that diaminotoluene (mixed) has not entirely shown its ability to cause cancer through scientific testing. The delisting of diaminotoluene (mixed) will go into effect on November 20, 2015.
