History Suggests California Will Require Warning Labels For Bacon

Sacramento’s Capitol Public Radio reports that the World Health Organization has classified bacon, ham and other processed meats as carcinogenic. As such, would California require Proposition 65 warning labels?

Passed in 1986, Proposition 65 requires California to compile a list of “chemicals known to increase cancer risk.” If these meats are added to that list, everyone from grocers and butchers to restaurants will have to post a notification.

The report notes that WHO-identified carcinogens are historically added to the Proposition 65 list, but State health officials say they are reviewing the WHO's findings and are not sure if they will add processed meats.
