Proposed Proposition 65 Regulation Concerning Chemicals in Coffee

OEHHA has initiated a proposed regulation to attempt to clarify that exposures to Proposition 65 listed chemicals in coffee are created by the roasting of coffee beans and brewing of coffee and the State asserts that it does not pose a significant cancer risk.  

The proposed language is as follows:

              ARTICLE 7. NO SIGNIFICANT RISK LEVELS § 25704. 

        Exposures to Listed  Chemicals in Coffee Posing No                                              Significant Risk

       Exposures to listed chemicals in coffee created                               by and inherent in the processes of roasting                                     coffee  beans or brewing coffee do not pose a significant               risk of cancer. 

NOTE: Authority cited: Section 25249.12, Health and Safety Code. Reference: Sections 25249.6 and 25249.10, Health and Safety Code

 A public hearing on the proposed rule making is scheduled for August 16, 2018 at 10 am in the CalEPA Headquarters Building, 1001 I Street, Sacramento.  A public-comment period on the proposed rule making will close on August 30, 2018.
