PFAS are prohibited!

Author:


1. Pay attention! You could be breaking the law!

New U.S. laws prohibit the sale or distribution of food packaging or food service appliances containing PFAS! New York's law will take effect on December 31, 2022, with similar laws in other states coming into effect at various dates (see link below). Do you still dare to use PFAS-containing products, such as bagasse? The consequences of continued use are unimaginable! Not only is it against the law, but it may also face a lot of consumer complaints and health risks!

2. Serious health risks!

PFAS as "perverted and polyfluoroalkyl substances" are difficult to understand without a chemical basis, but we just need to know that exposure to certain types of PFAS can have serious health effects! Such as an increased risk of certain cancers, increased cholesterol, and impaired immune function and vaccine response. PFAS can even enter our bodies through food and drinking water, consumer products and packaging, and breathing air or dust, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
