I am so excited to welcome supporters of Safer Chemicals Healthy Families and Mind the Store to our organization through our recent integration. Building on your support, we joined forces to achieve our shared mission: to protect your health and the health of our planet from harmful chemicals and pollution.
The Keep Food Containers Safer from PFAS Act would ban the use of toxic PFAS in food containers and cookware and empowers the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to deem PFAS substances in any food containers or cookware as unsafe. The bill gives the FDA until 2022 to enforce this ban.
The United States House of Representatives today passed a bipartisan bill that would begin to address the country’s PFAS crisis, H.R. 2467. The PFAS Action Act of 2021 will restrict PFAS air and water pollution and help to jumpstart cleanup at polluted sites across the country.
