According to a news source, the Center for Environmental Health has filed a lawsuit under California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act (Prop. 65), alleging that Reed’s Ginger Products fails to warn consumers about the caramel-coloring chemical 4-methylimidazole (4-MEI) purportedly present in its soft drinks. Ctr. for Envtl. Health v. Reed’s, Inc., No. n/a (Cal. Super. Ct., Alameda Cnty., filing date unknown). In a June 26, 2014, 60-day notice, the center claimed that the company had violated the law since January 2012, stating, “No clear and reasonable warning is provided with these products regarding the carcinogenic hazards associated with 4-MEI exposure.” Prop. 65, a voter-approved law, requires warnings to consumers about exposures to substances known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive hazards and allows private individuals or organizations to enforce it.
