"California judge rules that coffee requires cancer warning

Scientists haven't rendered a verdict on whether coffee is good or bad
for you but a California judge has. He says coffee sellers in the
state should have to post cancer warnings.
The culprit is a chemical produced in the bean roasting process that
is a known carcinogen and has been at the heart of an eight-year legal
struggle between a tiny nonprofit group and Big Coffee.
The Council for Education and Research on Toxics wanted the coffee
industry to remove acrylamide from its processing like potato chip
makers did when it sued them years ago or disclose the danger in
ominous warning signs or labels. The industry, led by Starbucks Corp.,
said the level of the chemical in coffee isn't harmful and any risks
are outweighed by benefits. . . ."
