California Court Rules In Coffee Case
From NAMA – California Court Rules In Coffee Case
Last week a decision was issued in a lawsuit alleging several coffee retailers in California were in violation of state law because they were not properly notifying consumers about the presence of acrylamide – a chemical believed to cause cancer by the State of California. The ruling in a long-standing legal case concerning coffee companies and California’s Prop. 65 was issued by a Los Angeles County Judge and may be appealed.
The immediate impact to the Convenience Services industry is still unknown. NAMA has been monitoring this and other Proposition 65 issues since its adoption in 1986. NAMA members will be updated when further, specific details on how this impacts the industry are known.
