This Notice proposes to amend Title 27, California Code of Regulations, by adopting Section 25505 Exposures to Listed Chemicals in Cooked or Heat Processed Foods. Some chemicals on the Proposition 65 list that are found in food are formed by the cooking or heat processing of the food. The presence of these chemicals can be unavoidable, but levels can be reduced in many circumstances. Taking this into account, the proposed regulation lays out what constitutes a Proposition 65 exposure that would compel warning for listed chemicals that are formed in food by cooking or heat processing, in a new Section 25505.
Public consultation is open for this proposal until Oct. 6, 2020.
