Chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and reproductive toxicity are present in dietary supplements, nutritional food powders, juice beverages, common grocery items (i.e. coffee, fried and baked goods) and other products sold at iHerb. Some or all of the products you are ordering from iHerb may contain these chemicals. These chemicals are not added to the products but are naturally occurring in many of the starting raw materials (ingredients) and/or results from the processing (cooking) of these products.
California's Proposition 65 (commencing with section 25249.5 of the Health and Safety Code) requires that producers, manufacturers and retailers of certain products provide customers with special warnings for products which contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, if the consumer is exposed to those chemicals in concentrations above certain thresholds.
iHerb is committed to compliance with CA Proposition 65 and to the safety of our customers. Accordingly, we provide the following warning for all products linked to this page:
Please Note: It is a well-known fact that Prop 65 has spawned lawsuits against several thousand companies that distribute, store, manufacture or sell products containing Prop 65 chemicals including iHerb. These lawsuits in some cases with no merit, have presented costly challenges to defend against opportunist individuals taking advantage of regulations mandated by Prop 65.
