Environmental advocates have recently filed a lawsuit in San Francisco Superior Court against omega-3 manufacturers following test results that were rendered public, showing that 3 out of 10 of the products tested did not meet California Proposition 65 polychlorinated biphenyl compounds (PCB) and Dioxin-Like PCBs (dl-PCB) standards. PCBs are toxic compounds that can often be found in fish and may be carried through to fish oils if they are not properly processed and refined.
In response to the press release announcing this lawsuit, ReNew Life is proud to confirm that the quality measures we implemented three years ago to test every batch of fish oil using the International Fish Oil Standard program (IFOS), assures us that our customers can feel confident in the safety of their ReNew Life fish oil supplements. You can go to the IFOS web site (www.ifosprogram.com) and look up the test results of each batch of our Norwegian Gold fish oil products.
The issue of environmental contaminants has long been a concern to ReNew Life, which is why, as just one part of our ongoing quality assurance program, we have implemented full IFOS testing of EVERY batch of fish oil we use, no exceptions.
Every batch of fish oil is tested for PCBs and dl-PCBs as well as dioxins, furans, arsenic, cadmium lead, mercury, and primary and secondary oxidative decomposition compounds, namely peroxides (PV) and aldehydes (p-Anisidine Value). This allows us to guarantee low contaminant levels and compliance to all major fish oil regulatory standards including Proposition 65, GOED and the World Health Organization.
Yours in Good Health,
