California Proposition 65 is a unique regulation that brings separate compliance requirements from all other regulations in the US (or abroad) and is enforced through civil litigation (via issuance of a Notice of Violation, or “NOV”). At the beginning of each month we take a quick look at an enforcement summary for the previous month to highlight the types of products being targeted, how frequently, and any new trends in enforcement action that may appear.

Hopefully these posts will raise a flag for any company selling these types of products into California so they can take a careful look at their products and get ahead of any potential costly enforcement action. Here is our monthly California Proposition 65 Enforcement Summary for June 2020 – learn about the trends and issues to help protect your business.

– Large uptick in total NOV issued in June (292) vs. May (~190),
– seafood products continue to be hammered with violations for heavy metals,
– acrylamide continues to be a target in a variety of baked products.
