CA coffee must have cancer warning

See this Los Angeles judge ruling that requires California coffee sellers to put this warning on their coffee due to unsafe levels of acrylamide. Starbucks failed to show its coffee was below the legal level for this carcinogen, clearly spelled out in Proposition 65. The story notes that "several defendants in the case settled before Wednesday’s decision, agreeing to post signage about the cancer-linked chemical and pay millions in fines, according to published reports."

On a related note, see this article on toxic levels of lead and/or cadmium in chocolate, with a proposed CA lawsuit that seeks similar a similar warning.
