Instagram Messenger Exchange

I thought my readers would like to see this exchange. I have been doing a lot of polite arguing with people today about the concern for unsafe levels of Lead and salt. I may have just snapped a little bit when I got this message (this girl obviously has no idea about my history with the company.) Full screenshots of the conversation are below.

Your Instagram is an awesome and I appreciate the good you are doing to help everyone navigate through their health journey. Wanted to also ask about your recent story you shared on lead in salt . Did you have all the different kinds of salt independently tested ? Curious what lab was used …… we love to nerd out on salt and all that salt is and it sounds like you have a passion for getting all the details too. I would love to share with you some REAL data on our REAL SALT! We care a lot about providing the best products and we are always sure to do testing and COA of all our products. Can I please email you our analysis ? Here’s my email if you have anymore questions!
I’ve met the owner of your company. I don’t like him. We don’t get along. He has a history of misleading customers with your product packaging and language when it comes to Lead. When he gets his shit together and starts treating this like it is a real serious problem and stops being so dismissive – we could maybe chat. In the meantime I would encourage everyone in your company to watch my film (all 92 minutes, to the end) and then seriously rethink the language you are using when it comes to sharing about the Lead content of your products and / or your publicly dismissive language about the significance of Prop 65 language. Here’s the link to my film: https://tamararubin.com/2021/01/my-film-passed-300000-views-on-youtube-today-heres-the-link-to-watch-it-if-you-have-not-yet/
You can email your analysis if you like: firstname.lastname@example.org – I will look at it.
I heard that there is a lawyer in California considering filing a lawsuit against Redmond over this (specifically prop 65 labeling history and language dismissing the importance of prop 65 in public statements). I am not sure where it stands – but I really suggest you all do better to address this. The world is watching. They want you to do the right thing.
Mostly over earthpaste
