Chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and reproductive toxicity, including acrylamide, are present in coffee, and other foods or beverages sold here. Acrylamide is not added to our products, but results from cooking, such as when coffee beans are roasted. As a result, acrylamide is present in our brewed coffee, including coffee made at home or elsewhere from our beans, ground, or instant coffee.
Your personal cancer risk is affected by a wide variety of factors. The FDA has not advised people to stop drinking coffee or eating baked goods that contain acrylamide. For more information regarding acrylamide, see www.fda.gov. For more information about acrylamide and Proposition 65, visit http://oehha.ca.gov/proposition-65/about-proposition-65.
