The 2011 Consumer Reports investigation controversy

A 2011 Consumer Reports investigation[12] found "total PCBs in amounts that could require warning labels under California’s Proposition 65, a consumer right-to-know law, in one sample of the CVS, GNC, and Sundown products, and in two samples of Nature’s Bounty".
