As much as 30% of the national sales of dietary supplements may be to California consumers - but companies that market in that state may encounter high penalties for non-compliance with a California law known as Proposition 65. The focus of this law for the supplement class has been on the warnings required for products that may inadvertently contain small amounts of heavy metals, such as arsenic, cadmium, and mercury, and especially lead. As of October 2010, over 100 companies in the supplement & sports nutrition categories have received 60-day notices alleging the presence of lead (and in some cases arsenic) above the very low level allowed under Proposition 65 and failure to provide required warnings. Learn what your company can do to protect itself from a Proposition 65 complaint. And if you have already received a 60-day notice, learn what your options are at this point.
