PFAS 2018 - Just a Few Legal Issues You Might Care About

PFAS are a large group of man-made fluorine-containing chemicals with unique properties to make materials to which they are applied stain and stick-resistant and are used to repel oil and water from clothing, carpeting, and furniture, in food packaging, and on non-stick surfaces on cookware. PFAS are very resistant to breakdown, migrate easily, and concentrate in the food chain. As a result, they may be found throughout the environment in groundwater, surface water, soil, and air.
