NOW Foods Response to Fish Oil and PCB Concerns

For over 40 years NOW Foods has been committed to providing products that empower people to lead healthier lives. Product safety and quality are our highest priorities; therefore we take any allegations about the safety of our products very seriously.

NOW is included in a group of defendants named in a lawsuit that claims that three of our fish oil products are in violation of the limits under California’s Proposition 65. Proposition 65 often applies to very small levels of chemicals – levels that in some cases are much lower than those permitted by other laws. This lawsuit was not filed by the state of California or any governmental authority but was filed by private plaintiffs. For more information about this lawsuit visit and

NOW fish oils are produced and tested by our suppliers against available industry standards and our manufacturing processes comply with Food & Drug Administration (FDA) regulations for Good Manufacturing Practices. Clinical studies have shown many health benefits from consuming fish oil. Fish oil supplementation offers a convenient and affordable way for many consumers to gain these health benefits. NOW has demonstrated our commitment to your safety by producing high quality natural products. We continue to stand behind this commitment.
