Sixty-Day Notice Filed Over PCB Levels in Farmed Salmon

The Environmental Working Group and the Center for Environmental Health have filed a 60-day notice of their intent to file suit under Proposition 65 over PCB levels in farmed salmon. The two environmental groups argue that recent studies have found excessive levels of the Proposition 65 listed carcinogen in farmed fish sold in supermarkets. 

The notice was sent to 50 producers of farmed salmon and retailers who sell the fish. Farmed salmon producers targeted include those based in Canada and Europe; such as Marine Harvest, Panfish, Stolt Sea Farm, Heritage and Mainstream. Retailers targeted include Safeway, Kroger, Albertson’s, and Costco. The notice alleges that the producers and retailers have introduced fish containing PCBs into California unaccompanied by the required Proposition 65 warning.
