Proposition 65 is a statute that all companies selling products into California must comply with by providing warnings if their products contain certain chemicals that result in consumer exposure above a certain daily threshold. Failure to comply with the stringent requirements of Prop 65, which are above and beyond the requirements of any other federal or state safety/regulatory requirements, can result in costly enforcement action. The food and dietary supplement industry have been frequently targeted for alleged violations, and industry as a whole pays out tens of millions of dollars each year to plaintiff lawyers finding non-compliant products. EAS Independent Consultant, Tom Jonaitis, will provide key insights into the compliance and enforcement trends in the food/supplement industry, important regulatory changes/case studies that highlight compliance issues, and practical guidance on how to ensure products are compliant and to avoid enforcement activity where possible.
