A California judge ruled that Starbucks and other coffee shops must put a cancer warning on coffee

Coffee shops in California, including places such as Starbucks as well as gas stations that sell coffee, need to post labels about potential cancer-causing chemicals in coffee, a California judge has ruled.

In March, Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle issued a tentative ruling that said coffee retailers had failed to demonstrate that the threat from acrylamide was insignificant.

Coffee companies including Starbucks fought back against that decision. A group of brands including Caribou, Folgers, and Keurig issued a new court filing in April arguing that they had indeed shown that the amount of acrylamide in coffee was harmless.
