To our valued customers,
Many of you may be aware of a recent lawsuit filed by Mateel Environmental Justice Foundation alleging that some fish oil and shark oil supplements contain levels of the toxic industrial compound polychlorinated biphenyl, or PCB, in violation of California’s Proposition 65. I’d like to take this opportunity to assure you, our customers, that Coromega products are safe and in compliance with Proposition 65, and were not named in the fish oil lawsuit.
The vitality and wellbeing of our patrons is our number one priority, and we take several steps to ensure that our products are safe for you and your families. I’ve asked our Director of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs, Celine Lacote, PharmD, to share a few of the numerous ways Coromega makes certain its products are safe, including:
- Our fish oil is sourced from anchovies and sardines, and purified through molecular distillation – a process that virtually eliminates heavy metals and other environmental contaminants such as PCBs.
- Our fish oil is third-party tested to ensure it meets the stringent limit for PCBs defined by California’s Proposition 65.
- Coromega is NSF certified and ConsumerLab approved.
The issue raised by this lawsuit is sensitive and one that our company does not take lightly. The Coromega team has always been committed to manufacturing the highest-quality omega-3 products, and I hope that by sharing these practices our customers will take comfort in knowing Coromega products are pure and safe. If you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our team at 877.275.3725 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in health,
Frank Morley President & COO, Coromega
