Proposition 65 notices and lawsuits targeting companies whose food products may contain acrylamide will be on the agenda at the Prop. 65 Clearinghouse Conference.
The annual conference, which will be virtual this year due to COVID-19, is scheduled for September 21, 7:30 a.m.–5 p.m.
Prop. 65 notices have been sent to companies making products ranging from ice cream cones to corn nuts. The conference will examine who is sending the notices, what state regulators can do, and possible ways to reduce acrylamide levels in food.
Other agenda subjects include:
• Experts and regulators discussing the impact of new amendments to the warning regulations;
• What businesses need to know about trends in Prop. 65 litigation;
• How Prop. 65 allocates responsibility in the distribution chain and how that can affect businesses; and
• New Prop. 65 hurdles facing the marijuana industry.
The conference will be chaired by longtime Prop. 65 practitioner Robert Falk, partner at Morrison & Foerster.
