California’s legislature is considering new legislation that would ban the manufacture, sale, or distribution of certain consumer products sold in California unless manufacturers publish a comprehensive list of ingredients on a publicly available website, and include the website addresses on the products’ labels. As currently drafted, Senate Bill 928 (“SB 928”) applies to automotive products, cleaning products, polish or floor maintenance products, and air fresheners and deodorizers. The scope of products, however, is under review and could be changed by the legislature before enactment.
