New California labeling requirement - Prop 65

Recommended Posts

I saw an item in today's ADI e-news that could have an impact on every liquor bottle sold in California: New Prop 65 Labelling Requirements Take Effect August 30

This could be huge as many beverage alcohol components, including ethanol itself, fall under the new regulation: Acetaldehyde, Methanol, Furfural alcohol,... etc. 

For the complete list of Prop 65 ingredients, please see: https://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/chemicals

Liquor bottles appear to fall under the regulation, so booze sold in California may have to wear a warning label as of August 30... unless, of course, this contradicts the TTBs regulation against having any health claims on liquor labels.
