The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also known as Proposition 65, is a California law intended to protect its citizens from chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm, and to inform citizens of the potential dangers of exposure to such chemicals.
One such chemical is acrylamide, which may be present in coffee, including those sold by LAMILL. Acrylamide is a naturally occurring byproduct formed when certain sugars and an amino acid react to high temperatures, including when coffee is roasted.
Your personal cancer risk is affected by a variety of factors. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not advised people to stop drinking coffee that contain acrylamide. For more information on acrylamide, please consult the FDA’s website at fda.gov. For more information about acrylamide and Proposition 65, please visit www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65.html.
