PFAS (perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances) is a family of life-threatening chemicals that doesn’t break down in nature and is linked with cancer, birth defects, and hormone disruption. These pervasive toxins are found in nearly every type of consumer and industrial product, in groundwater and drinking water, and even in the blood of an estimated 99% of Americans!
According to an article in the Scientific American, “A proposed federal rule calls for forcing companies to disclose whether their products contain toxic ‘forever’ chemicals,” but that’s merely an attempt by the government to document the prevalence of PFAS across the country. It doesn’t limit use of PFAS. It doesn’t provide a PFAS cleanup plan. And it doesn’t apply to “pesticides, food and food additives, drugs, cosmetics, and medical devices regulated under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.”
We’ll say that again:
The proposed federal rule to disclose PFAS contamination does not apply to pesticides, food and food additives, drugs, cosmetics, and medical devices.
It also doesn’t apply to “trade secrets” (ahem, fragrance!). That means countless consumer products may continue to be laden with at least one class of carcinogenic, hormone-disrupting ingredients for the foreseeable future, despite this supposedly landmark federal action. So much for protecting consumers.
