California Residents - Prop 65 Warning

This notice only applies to California consumers and not to consumers in any other state or country.

 WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm -

The California law requires us to provide this warning if our product has any ingredients that tests over 1/1000th of what the World Health Organization terms as “Safe Harbor Levels” of a list of chemicals, including naturally occurring minerals.

For example, our Spirulina Powder is extremely nutrient dense and contains naturally occurring minerals including small traces of lead. This is common for all natural foods grown on clean soils.

The USDA recommended 3-5 servings of vegetables daily could easily contain up to ten times more lead than the maximum allowed by California prop 65.

To put this in perspective, here are two examples of foods you may eat daily:

  1. Natural green beans contain 28.75 micrograms of lead in a one cup serving, which is an exposure of approximately 50 times the allowed Prop 65 levels. 
  2. Natural spinach contains approximately 5.2 micrograms of lead in a typical adult serving size which is an exposure that exceeds Prop 65 levels by 10 times. 

We don't have to put the warning on products being shipped anywhere else in the WORLD. The FDA, Europe, and Australasian safe tolerance level for lead is well over our lead level. NO other state or country has this requirement.

Prop 65 has been criticized heavily at that 1/1000th notification requirement. However, we must comply with the law, so you will see this warning on all of our products.
