What is California Proposition 65?

Proposition 65, also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, is a California law that mandates businesses to warn residents about significant exposure to chemicals causing cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm. It applies to businesses operating in or selling products to California. The law maintains a list of harmful chemicals, and businesses must provide clear warnings. Non-compliance can result in legal consequences and penalties. Private citizens, advocacy groups, and government agencies can enforce the law through lawsuits. Proposition 65 requires businesses to assess their products for potential exposure, provide appropriate warnings, and ensure compliance with the regulations. We care deeply about our customers' safety and hope that the information below helps with your buying decisions. We are providing the following warning for products linked to this page:

WARNING: Consuming this product can expose you to chemicals including acrylamide, arsenic (inorganic), bisphenol A (BPA), di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP), and lead, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Some foods contain chemicals on the Proposition 65 list.

Food is essential to life and good health.  However, many foods contain substances, such as saturated fats, salt and sugar, that should be consumed in moderation.  Similarly, some foods contain Proposition 65-listed chemicals.  This does not mean that these foods should never be eaten.  But interested consumers can decide what and how often to eat certain foods if they wish to reduce their exposure to these chemicals.

The Proposition 65-listed chemicals commonly found in such foods are:

  • Acrylamide is formed mostly on the surface of plant-based foods when they are browned during frying, roasting, grilling, or baking.  In general, the browner the surface, the higher the level of acrylamide.
  • Arsenic (Inorganic) is a naturally occurring chemical element in the Earth’s crust.
  • Bisphenol A (BPA) This chemical is used in some coatings for cans, jar lids, and bottle caps.  BPA is also used in some polycarbonate plastic bottles and other food contact items.  However, the use of BPA in these items is decreasing.  
  • Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) is a type of phthalate added to many plastics to make them flexible, and can be gradually released into certain foods and beverages from plastic food packaging.
  • Lead is a metal found in some dietary supplements, certain balsamic vinegars, some imported spices such as turmeric.  In the past, some imported candies such as some products containing chili and tamarind, have had significant amounts of lead.
