Golden Heritage Foods

We represent Golden Heritage Foods, a major U.S. processor and packager of retail honey products, in connection with a private enforcement action brought under California’s Proposition 65 toxics enforcement and notification law. The matter involves allegations that honey sold by the company and distributed at retail outlets throughout California contained lead at levels exceeding applicable safe harbor levels under state law. We helped the company negotiate a settlement of these allegations that, if confirmed by the California Superior court, will result in the establishment of new product standards having substantial compliance implications for the industry as a whole.
