What do PFAS Actions Tell us About State Regulatory Officials?

What do PFAS Actions Tell us About State Regulatory Officials?

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

Last month we looked at some recent FDA action against perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, aka PFAS, some of which are used in grease-resistant coatings in paper and paperboard. Turns out, there’s a fair amount of state-level action as well.

For one thing, the organization who brought us the model toxics law back in the 1990s that prohibited intentional use of four heavy metals in packaging, is considering amending their model law to include PFAS and phthalates.
