Coffee Must Come with Cancer Warning Label in California, Judge Rules

(From UPI)

Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle issued a tentative ruing in a lawsuit brought forth against several large companies, including Starbucks, Whole Foods, 7-11 and others for serving coffee because the beverage contains acrylamide, a chemical that might be linked to increased cancer rates.

Berle’s ruling is based on California’s Proposition 65, which requires businesses to warn customers if a product contains a chemical linked to cancer.
