Based on the results of a new, yet to be published scientific study, a new lawsuit says many plastic containers used in the U.S. to hold food, drinks, cleaning supplies, personal care items and other consumer products are contaminated with toxic PFAS at extremely high levels.
Scientists have found there are over 50,000 PFAS-contaminated sites throughout the United States. See the map.
A recent analysis of existing scientific studies revealed that toxic PFAS chemicals were detected in every umbilical cord blood sample across 40 studies conducted over the last five years.
Buyer Beware: Clothing has been found in laboratory tests to contain an array of toxic chemicals like phthalates, lead, brominated flame retardants and even PFAS forever chemicals.

A new study has demonstrated that exposure to PFAS ‘forever chemicals’ can significantly increase an adult’s risk for liver cancer. Researchers found that those people who had the highest exposure to PFAS chemicals were 4.5 times more likely to develop liver cancer.
Scientists tested over 100 different products ranging from salad bowls to burger wrappers from restaurant and grocery chains to measure the level of toxic PFAS chemicals. Researchers found PFAS ‘forever chemicals’ in bowls, bags, plates, and wrappers, even from some companies that claim they have phased them out.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently issued nationwide health advisories for four toxic PFAS chemicals commonly found in drinking water.
