Processed Meat Listed as a Carcinogen and Must Have Warning Label in California

on 16 February 2018

A resolution introduced in the California State Legislature by Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), urges the Office of Environment Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) to add processed meat, such as hot dogs, bacon, and deli meat, to California’s list of substances known to cause cancer. Companies that sell products associated with these listed substances, either in combination with unlisted substances or alone, in California must provide “clear and reasonable” warnings on the label to inform consumers about the risk. A 2015 World Health Organization report classified processed meat, including pepperoni, ham, and sausage made from pork, beef, or poultry as a Group 1 carcinogen. Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in California. (pcrm.org)
