Disclaimer for Cacao Products and Proposition 65:

Millcreek Cacao Roasters acknowledges the potential presence of substances listed under California's Proposition 65 in some cacao products. Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.

While we strive to ensure the safety of our products, cacao naturally contains trace amounts of certain chemicals. As a result, we are providing this warning to inform our customers about the potential exposure. It's important to note that the presence of these substances does not necessarily indicate a violation of any safety standards.

By purchasing and consuming our cacao products, you acknowledge and accept the potential exposure to substances listed under Proposition 65. If you have any specific concerns or questions, we recommend consulting with a healthcare professional or contacting Millcreek Cacao Roasters for more information.

Millcreek Cacao Roasters is committed to compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and we take the necessary steps to provide accurate information and ensure the safety of our products.
