    The news about that coffee may contain a substance linked to cancer

    A judge has ruled that coffee sellers in California must warn people that coffee may contain a substance linked to cancer.
    The Council for Education and Research on Toxics brought a case against dozens of coffee companies in 2010.
    The not-for-profit group wanted the coffee industry to either remove the chemical acrylamide from its processing, or warn buyers about it.
    Acrylamide has been identified as a possible cancer-causing substance.
    The chemical is naturally produced during the roasting of coffee beans.
    California state law requires warning to be written on products containing chemicals identified as possible causes of coffee-making process is not enough to cause harm.
    Starbucks and other major producer have cited studies suggesting that coffee provides several health benefits.
    But Los Angeles Judge Elihu Berle ruled Wednesday the companies had failed to prove that acrylamide levels in coffee do not cause harmful effects.
    Coffee companies have resisted calls to remove acrylamide from their products, saying it would change the taste of the drinks.
    In a statement, the National Coffee Association criticized the ruling and said it was considering an appeal and other possible legal actions.
    “Cancel warning labels on coffee would be misleading”, the statement said.
    “The U.S government’s own Dietary Guidelines state that coffee can be part of a health lifestyle.
    Many coffee store already have put up warnings saying acrylamide is a cancer-causing chemical found in coffee.
    But such signs are often put in places not easily seen by buyers.
    The lawsuit also seeks civil punishments as large as $2500 per person for every incident of exposure to acrylamide at California coffee stores since 2002.
    Those punishments could reach huge amounts in California, which has a population of nearly 40 million.
    However, as a bags manufacturer, we have been ever produced bags for Starbucks C offee as below picture:-).
