California Assembly Bill No. 1200 Cookware Disclosure

American Kitchen® Elite California AB 1200 Statement

At American Kitchen® Elite, they prioritize product safety and strive to adhere to all applicable laws governing their products. Their cookware is crafted using premium materials and undergoes rigorous testing to meet the highest safety standards. Their cookware products mentioned here align with the specified limits and regulations set by the federal Food and Drug Administration and the European Union. This includes compliance with the relevant requirements outlined in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations, which governs the safe usage of product components in direct contact with food.

California's AB 1200, Health & Safety Code Section 109010 et seq., mandates that manufacturers of certain cookware provide disclosures regarding the intentional addition of specific chemicals to the products' food contact components and handles. AB 1200 is exclusive to California law. As of 2023, manufacturers must indicate on their websites if the cookware sold in California contains one or more "intentionally added" chemicals from designated lists. Starting in 2024, manufacturers are also obligated to specify these chemicals on the product labels of cookware sold in California, except in cases where the cookware lacks packaging or labeling.

AB 1200 defines "cookware" as items utilized to prepare, dispense, or store food, foodstuffs, or beverages. This encompasses pots, pans, skillets, grills, baking sheets, baking molds, trays, bowls, and cooking utensils. "Intentionally added" refers to chemicals deliberately incorporated by the manufacturer into the product, with these chemicals serving a functional or technical purpose. Some American Kitchen® Elite products fall within the definition of cookware under AB 1200. The tables on this webpage identify American Kitchen® Elite cookware containing specific listed chemicals sold in California for which the website disclosure is required.
