Jun. 11 – Prop 65: Companies failed to warn of carcinogen in soaps

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

California’s attorney general has accused several manufacturers of failing to warn consumers of a potentially cancer-causing chemical in their soaps.

In a lawsuit filed in Alameda County Superior Court, Attorney General Jerry Brown claims that the companies’ body washes, gels and liquid dish soaps contain 1,4-dioxane.

Under a state law passed by voters known as Proposition 65, businesses must label their products or otherwise warn consumers of such chemicals.

The companies named in the suit filed late last month are Whole Foods Market California Inc.; Avalon Natural Products; Beaumont Products Inc.; and Nutribiotic.
