Prop 65 (for California Residents)
California Prop 65
WARNING: Reproductive Harm – www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
This warning has been added to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 so that we can continue serving our customers in California.
Lead is an element that can be found commonly or naturally in soil, plants, and water. It is not intentionally added to our herbal products. We choose herbs that are tested for heavy metals at unsafe levels.
The State of California requires a warning for any product sold in California that would result in a consumer ingesting more than 0.5 micrograms of lead in a day. This is an exceedingly low level that is, by law, 1000 times lower than the level of exposure that has been shown to have no observable effect on humans or animals. Therefore, the law sets an extremely stringent warning threshold.
Many herbs contain very low levels of lead that may trigger the requirement to warn. Rather than limiting our customers’ access to whole herb products in California, we have chosen to issue the warning specified under Proposition 65.
