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

NOW is included in a group of defendants named in a lawsuit that claims that three of the company's 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.

NOW fish oils are produced and tested by their suppliers against available industry standards and NOW's 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 Foods has demonstrated a commitment to safety by producing high quality natural products. They continue to stand behind this commitment.
