PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are a group of man-made chemicals widely used in everyday products. This is due to their water and grease-resistant properties For example, PFAS are found in cookware, food packaging, furniture, clothing, and even cosmetics. However, their pervasive presence in everyday items has raised concerns about their potential health and environmental risks. Several states have taken proactive measures to ban or restrict PFAS in household items. Finally, the federal government is following suit and implementing regulations on PFAS.

What are PFAS?

PFAS are synthetic chemicals used in a range of household products. Additionally, they are used in commercial products such as firefighting foam and machinery. They have been linked to adverse health effects such as cancer, reproductive issues, and immune system disorders.

State Actions and Bans

Fortunately, several states have begun to implement processes to safeguard consumers from potential harm from PFAS. Below is a list of proactive states.

Federal Government Following States

The federal government is following states’ leads on PFAS regulation. For example, in February 2024, the Food and Drug Administration announced that food packaging containing PFAS would no longer be sold in the United States. Additionally, in April 2024, the Environmental Protection Agency announced the first-ever nationwide and legally enforceable drinking water standards concerning PFAS.

Impact on Consumers

These actions aim to protect consumers from potential exposure to harmful chemicals in everyday items. By banning or limiting PFAS in household products, states are taking proactive steps to mitigate health and environmental risks associated with these substances.


State actions banning PFAS in household items reflect a growing awareness of the potential dangers posed by these chemicals. Consumers can benefit from these measures by making informed choices and advocating for safer alternatives.
