Join Ann Blake, CPA, and GreenBlue to understand the hazards of PFAS chemicals and how to avoid them when purchasing food service ware.
Manufacturers of disposable food packaging and food service ware often add PFAS to impart moisture, oil, and grease resistance. PFAS are highly persistent, ubiquitous, and can migrate into food from packaging and food service ware. Upon disposal, PFAS can contaminate drinking water, compost, and agricultural crops. While PFAS pose alarming health risks, they could be avoided if the right precautions are taken when purchasing food service ware. You will learn about the new resources available to help make more informed purchasing decisions.
