XSTO SOLUTIONS, LLC (XSTO) announced today that it always has and will continue to test each and every lot of its high concentrate fish oil to standards well beyond the No Significant Risk Levels (NSRL) detailed in California’s Proposition 65. In addition to the standard tests found on the typical certificate of analysis, each lot is tested at an independent laboratory for 187 discrete pesticides/fungicides, 17 separate dioxins, 17 unique hydrocarbons and 11 different PCB’s. Assays show XSTO material is below parts per trillion for the 11 identified PCB compounds. The completed PCB tests measure to the picogram level and our maximum allowable level is 9,000 times lower than Prop 65’s NSRL.
“XSTO’S experience in preparing manufacturers for rigorous quality assurance testing pays off when the entire industry is challenged as we have recently seen. As a raw material supplier, Xsto and our manufacturing partner BRUDY TECHNOLOGY have chosen to bear an extraordinary and significant expense of testing for possible contaminants” stated Francis Foley, President of XSTO. XSTO relies on both manufacturer and third party assays to ensure their material not only confirms but surpasses California Prop 65. “With a significant position on high concentrate Omegas, we want our customers to know we are taking every precaution to ensure XSTO products are beyond question in terms of safety. We believe the safety of the consumer and the reputation of our customers is worth this additional vigilance” added Dan Murray, VP at XSTO.
