OEHHA Proposes Voluntary Prop 65 Acrylamide Warning

The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) which regulates Proposition 65 is proposing an additional optional safe harbor warning for businesses to provide a warning for acrylamide exposure from food. OEHHA is engaged in rulemaking to address exposures to certain listed chemicals in food created by roasting, cooking, and / or heat processing. While OEHHA undergoes the rulemaking process, a California district court recently ruled that no new bounty hunter legal actions can be filed for alleged acrylamide exposure. However, OEHHA permits businesses to provide a warning for acrylamide exposure. The new OEHHA proposal also provides additional optional safe harbor warning language for acrylamide exposure from food. OEHHA explains the language in its Initial Statement of Reasons as part of Title 27. California Code of Regulations.
