“The largest economy in the nation advances efforts to ban a group of chemicals known as PFAS on Jan. 1, now barely three months away.
That is when California’s ban on the sale of nondurable food packaging in California containing per- and polyflouroalkyl, or PFAS, chemicals goes into effect.
However, the ban on PFAS in food packaging is just one element of California’s A.B. 1200, which was enacted in October 2021.A.B. 1200 also requires replacing PFAS in food packaging with the least toxic alternative, and requires disclosure of a broad range of non-PFAS chemicals in cookware.”
