Starbucks warn their Coffee may cause cancer another reason to choose SISEL KAFFE
Apparently Starbucks is following in the footsteps of big tobacco warnings and they are making sure they are covered for future cancer causing claims against their coffee. When in the Starbucks store in the state of California their is a Prop 65 warning very prominently posted.
Prop 65 Warning at Starbucks states that the coffee might cause cancer.
PROP 65 WARNING AT STARBUCKS
Acrylamide has been in the news the past few years stating that anything cooked or fried has small trace amounts of the substance, so there may not be too much to be worried about.
The State of California has actually sued and won against major corporations under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, Health and Safety Code section 25249.6, also known as “Proposition 65,” that businesses must provide persons with a “clear and reasonable warning” before exposing individuals to these chemicals which includes acrylamide.
Placing the warning on the condiments counter after the purchase seems a bit late — it would have been better to be in front of the cash register.

Acrylamide is not added to our products, but results from cooking, such as when coffee beans are roasted or baked goods are baked.
