At La Sirena, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality canned seafood products that bring the taste of the ocean to your table. As a brand committed to excellence, we want to ensure that our customers are well-informed about the safety and compliance standards we adhere to. That’s why we want to shed light on Proposition 65 (Prop 65), a California state law that may be relevant to our products.

What is Proposition 65?

Proposition 65, also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, is a California law that aims to protect consumers from exposure to chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. The law requires businesses to provide clear warnings when their products contain any of the listed chemicals in amounts above the established safety thresholds.

Why is Prop 65 Relevant to Canned Seafood?

As a seafood company, we must address Prop 65 because certain fish species, including some commonly found in our canned products, naturally contain low levels of mercury and other chemicals. Although these chemicals occur naturally in the environment, they are on the Prop 65 list due to their potential health risks if consumed in excessive amounts over a prolonged period.

La Sirena’s Commitment to Safety and Compliance At La Sirena, your health and well-being are our top priorities. We are fully committed to ensuring that our products meet the highest safety and compliance standards. To achieve this, we take several measures:

  1. Rigorous Supplier Selection: We partner with trusted suppliers who share our commitment to quality and compliance. Our suppliers are carefully chosen based on their adherence to stringent safety regulations and their ability to provide us with the finest seafood from sustainable sources.
  2. Regular Testing: We conduct comprehensive testing of our canned seafood products to monitor and verify their safety. These tests are performed by independent laboratories accredited by regulatory authorities. By conducting these tests, we can ensure that our products meet or exceed all applicable safety standards, including those related to Prop 65.
  3. Clear and Informative Labels: We provide clear and informative labels on our products to keep our customers well-informed. In compliance with Prop 65, our labels include a warning when necessary, indicating the potential presence of chemicals listed under the law. These warnings serve as a precautionary measure to keep you informed about the naturally occurring substances that may be present in our canned seafood.
  4. Consumer Education: We believe that informed consumers make the best choices for their well-being. That’s why we actively strive to educate our customers about the importance of balanced seafood consumption, the potential risks associated with certain chemicals, and how to make informed decisions when purchasing and consuming our products.

We encourage you to enjoy our delicious canned seafood products with confidence. The health benefits of seafood are widely recognized, and the levels of naturally occurring chemicals in our products are within the safety limits established by regulatory authorities. By following recommended serving sizes and maintaining a balanced diet, you can continue to savor the exquisite flavors of La Sirena while nourishing your body.
