California Proposes Stricter Labeling Requirements of Cleaning Products

Last month, California introduced bill AB 708. If passed, this bill would require manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to disclose all “chemical” ingredients for designated consumer products. Covered products include “air care products,” “automotive products,” “cleaning products,” and “polish or floor maintenance products.” Companies would be required to list the ingredients for the covered products on their labels and the company’s website. Failure to comply would disqualify the product from sale in California. [3/20/15]
