What is California Proposition 65?
Proposition 65 is the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act passed by voters in the State of California in 1986. The act was created to inform people about possible exposure to chemicals known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and/or other reproductive harm.
What are the requirements of Proposition 65?
Proposition 65 requires that the Governor of California maintain and publish a list of harmful chemicals. The list is updated annually and includes chemicals that can be found in solvents, drugs, dyes, food additives, by-products of certain processes, pesticides, and tobacco products.
A chemical is listed if it has been classified as a reproductive toxicant or carcinogen by an "authoritative" organization on the subject. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the National Toxicology Program, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer are considered authoritative for carcinogens. For reproductive toxicants, the authorities are the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and International Agency for Research on Cancer. Chemicals will also be listed if they are required to be labeled or identified as a carcinogen or as a reproductive toxicant by an agency of the state or federal government.
Why has MSR placed a Proposition 65 label on its products?
Any company with 10 or more employees operating or selling products within the State of California must comply with the requirements of Proposition 65. To comply, businesses are: (1) prohibited from knowingly discharging listed chemicals into sources of drinking water; and (2) required to provide a "clear and reasonable" warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to a listed chemical.
A Proposition 65 warning means that the business has evaluated the exposure and has concluded that it exceeds the "no significant risk level," or that the business is providing a warning based on the presence of a "listed" chemical without actually evaluating the exposure.
MSR is providing a warning based on our knowledge about the presence of one or more listed chemicals without attempting to evaluate the level of exposure. While using an MSR product, the exposure to a "listed" chemical may be well within the "no significant risk" range, but out of caution, we have placed the Proposition 65 warning labels on our products.
Are consumers who are using an MSR product with a Proposition 65 warning at risk?
The California government states: "The fact that a product bears a Proposition 65 warning does not mean by itself that the product is unsafe." The government also explained, "You could think of Proposition 65 more as a 'right to know' law than a pure product safety law."
A Proposition 65 warning means that the product contains one or more listed chemicals. By law, a warning is required unless the business proves that the exposure to the chemical poses "no significant risk." The "no significant risk" level for carcinogens is defined as the level which is calculated to result in not more than one excess case of cancer in 100,000 individuals exposed over a 70-year lifetime. Therefore, if you are exposed to the chemical in question at this level every day for 70 years, theoretically, it will increase your chances of getting cancer by no more than 1 case in 100,000 individuals so exposed.
The "no significant risk" level for reproductive toxicants is defined as the level of exposure which, even if multiplied by 1,000, will not produce birth defects or other reproductive harm. Therefore, the level of exposure is below the "no observable effect level," divided by 1,000. (The "no observable effect level" is the highest dose level which has not been associated with observable reproductive harm in humans or test animals.)

First things first, WindBurner pots must be used only with WindBurner stoves. This is because the pot and stove are specifically engineered to create an integrated system. There are currently two WindBurner stove burner designs. The first is a burner that threads directly onto the top of the canister. It is available only in the smallest WindBurner system, the Personal 1.0 L System. The second is newer and is a remote-canister design, wherein the stove is remotely connected to the canister by a fuel line. This new design is available all other WindBurner Systems.
Every WindBurner pot is compatible with the new remote-canister stove. It provides the necessary stability needed for the larger pots. Therefore, the remote-canister stove is compatible with:
If you own the 1.0 L Personal system or a first-gen 1.8 L system and your stove mounts on top of the canister, you may use these pots:
Do not use the larger 2.5 L Group Sauce Pot or 4.5 L Stock Pot on this top-mounted stove; the larger pots are less stable on this stove.
Have the original top-mounting stove? Considering upgrading to the new WindBurner stove that connects remotely to the canister?
Whether you should depends on your cooking preferences.
The new remote-canister stove burner is a more versatile stove because it provides the ability to cook with the larger WindBurner pots. If you plan to cook for groups or make more elaborate meals in the backcountry, the new remote-canister stove is your ticket. It comes in the new Duo System, the Group System and the Combo System.
If you simply want to boil water fast, and your party size is typically only 1-3 people, the 1.0 L Personal System or the first-generation 1.8 L System (which feature the top-mounted stove) remain great options.
We know that in the backcountry, reliable gear is critical. That’s why MSR gear has always been engineered to the highest quality standards and rigorously tested before it reaches you.
If your MSR gear is in need of repair, please contact our Seattle Repair Shop at 1-800-245-2992 and our technicians will work to find you a solution as quickly as possible. A majority of the time, MSR products can be repaired.
