Chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or reproductive toxicity, including lead, are present in herbal supplements sold here. Lead is not added to our products, but results from food and herbal ingredients that contain naturally occurring lead from the environment. As a result, lead is present in our herbal products, including herbs grown at home or elsewhere, in grocery stores or other retail locations.
Your personal cancer risk is affected by a wide variety of factors. The FDA has not advised people to stop taking herbal supplements or foods that contain lead. This is MANDATED IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA ONLY. For more information regarding FDA’s views, visit: www.fda.gov.
