New FDA Webpage on Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of human-made chemicals that are found in a wide range of products used by consumers and industry. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) launched a new webpage on PFAS that will be updated soon with data tables.

The FDA is working to better understand the potential dietary exposure to PFAS, by:

  • Assessing foods for PFAS through sampling:
    • related to areas where there is a known environmental contamination,
    • of the general food supply; and
  • Reviewing the limited authorized uses of PFAS in food contact applications.
