FDA Makes Available Results from Second Round of Testing for PFAS in Foods from the General Food Supply

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is posting results from the second round of testing for 16 types of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in foods collected for the Total Diet Study (TDS). These findings, along with the first round of testing results posted in October 2019, will inform our continued work to understand the occurrence of PFAS in the general food supply. TDS foods represent a broad range of foods, including breads, cakes, fruits, dairy vegetables, meats, poultry, fish, and bottled water, that the average consumer might eat and that were not specifically collected from areas of known environmental PFAS contamination.
