Lead/supplements Proposition 65 litigation

Dietary supplement manufacturers

In People of the State of California v. 21st Century Healthcare, Inc., et al., our attorneys represented over a dozen dietary supplement manufacturers and retailers in Proposition 65 litigation brought by the California Attorney General and several California District Attorneys seeking warnings for the presence of naturally occurring lead in vitamin supplement products. The case was initiated following testing by the US Food & Drug Administration detected small amounts of lead in dozens of vitamin products at levels permitted under federal law. Issues presented include the appropriate allowance for naturally occurring lead in these products as well as the effect of prior court-approved settlements.
