“Coffee sold in California could carry cancer warning labels”

“Coffee could carry an ominous cancer warning in California if a nonprofit group prevails in a Los Angeles courtroom.” In a 7-year-old case against Starbucks and others, a group called the Council for Education and Research on Toxics “says coffee companies violated a state law requiring they warn consumers about a chemical created in the roasting process that could cause cancer.” [AP/KSBY; more Prop 65 follies]

  • There is yet one more recipient of the benefits of Prop 65, in addition to attorneys. That recipient is the group of sign makers and label makers who produce the Prop 65 warning signs and stick-on labels. I’ll wager that the cost of these signs and label pales in comparison to the legal fees earned by the tort vultures.
