TAKE A CLOSER LOOK: NO PFAS ADDED PRODUCTS
WHAT ARE PFAS?
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals often found in food packaging, cookware, and other products designed to hold or cook food. PFAS are used to coat foodservice products, as the chemicals help prevent containers or cups from soaking up grease, oils, and water.
WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF PFAS?
PFAS have been linked to various health and environmental problems, causing consumers to demand establishments to provide products and packaging with no PFAS added. Many studies have linked PFAS exposure to a variety of health and environmental problems, including:
  • Cancer
  • Reproductive and development effects
  • Immune system effects
  • Endocrine disruption
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Thyroid hormone disruptions
  • Harms wildlife
  • Contaminates water, wells, air, and soils
WHICH STATES HAVE PFAS REGULATIONS IN FOOD PACKAGING?

State lawmakers are taking decisive action to protect consumers from the potentially harmful effects of PFAS by introducing legislation that bans its use in food packaging.

In California, under the Safer Consumer Products (SCP) regulations, the Assembly Bill (AB) 1200 was introduced into law. The AB bans all plant fiber-based food packaging with PFAS added or at levels exceeding 100 parts per million, as measured in total organic fluorine.

In New York, the use of PFAS in food packaging has been banned under the Hazardous Packaging Act, Title II of Article 37 of the Environmental Conservation Law. Food packaging covered by the law includes packages or packaging components intended for direct food contact and comprised mainly of materials derived from plant fibers.

TIPS ON REDUCING YOUR EXPOSURE TO PFAS
There are a couple of actions you can take to help reduce your guests' exposure to PFAS:
  • Understand what materials manufacturers use to give plant-fiber based products greaseproof and waterproof properties. Only purchase single-use products from retailers that have pledged to eliminate toxic chemicals from their product lines.
  • Educate yourself on the kinds of materials free from PFAS. Materials such as PLA plastic, stainless steel, and silicone are some materials that don’t contaminate food.

When choosing the right restaurant supplies, it is important to consider products that do not have harmful chemicals like PFAS. Restaurantware offers a wide selection of foodservice supplies with no PFAS added, making it simple for establishments to provide guests with a safe dining experience.
