Understanding the Prop 65 Warning on Our Products

Q: Why is there a Prop 65 warning on your shellfish products?

A: At Santa Monica Seafood, we provide transparent information to our customers. The Prop 65 warning on our shellfish products, including oysters, mussels, clams, and scallops, is in compliance with California regulations. These shellfish may naturally contain traces of substances like cadmium and lead from their seawater environments.

Q: Are these substances harmful?

A: While these substances can be harmful at high levels, the amounts present in our shellfish are typically minimal. Additionally, our bodies absorb only a small percentage of these substances. We prioritize safety and ensure that our products meet quality standards.

Q: How does this affect me as a consumer?

A: By displaying the Prop 65 warning, we inform you of potential exposures to substances that could pose health risks like cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm. Your safety and well-being are our top priorities, and we aim to empower you to make informed choices about the seafood you enjoy.
