On August 4, 2020, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), the lead agency that implements California’s Proposition 65 (Prop 65), proposed to adopt a new regulation that would significantly change the warning requirements for listed chemicals formed by the cooking or heat processing of foods. The proposed regulation would provide that intake of such chemicals does not represent an exposure for the purposes of Prop 65 if the concentrations are reduced to the lowest level currently feasible using appropriate quality control measures. The proposal would establish maximum concentration levels for acrylamide in specific foods that are deemed by OEHHA to be the lowest levels currently feasible. Concentrations of the chemical at or below the level identified for the specified products would not require a warning.
