OEHHA Proposes to List Herbal Medicines

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment is proposing to include “aristolochic acids” and “herbal remedies containing plant species of the genus “Aristolochia” on Proposition 65’s list of carcinogens. 
 
In proposing this listing, OEHHA is not following its usual practice in recent years of either relying on the “authoritative body” mechanism or on the recommendation of the state’s “experts” (the Carcinogen Identification Committee and the Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Committee). Instead, the agency is reaching back to the beginning of Proposition 65 by basing the proposed listing on a statutory provision that has not been used for listing chemicals since the initial Proposition 65 list was formulated.

Proposed Listing of Fumonisin Draws Food Industry...

OEHHA’s August 18 notice of intent to list fumonisin B1 as a carcinogen under Proposition 65’s authoritative bodies mechanism generated just two written comments by the October 8, deadline. 

However, those two comments reflected objections from a broad range of the U.S. food industry, from processors and manufacturers to grocers and restaurateurs—essentially the same heavyweight group that worked to forestall a previous listing of fumonisin back in 2000 (see Prop 65 News, September 1 &15, 2000). 

Under the authoritative bodies mechanism, OEHHA could now make its decision on fumonisin B1 with no further public interactions on the proposal. Industry objectors have asked that OEHHA provide an opportunity for further comment before making a listing decision.
