New York, the United States, passed a bill prohibiting the sale or distribution of all food packaging containing perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances in the state. The ban will take effect in early 2023.
PFAS is often used in food packaging, household cleaners and non-stick cookware. PFAS chemicals are associated with a series of human health risks, including cancer, immune system diseases, reproductive abnormalities and fetal development problems. PFAS cannot be degraded in the environment and is called a permanent chemical. Therefore, in order to prevent PFAS from entering the human body through drinking water, New York prohibits the use of food packaging containing PFAS.
