Description Ecology's Legislative Report on Safer Alternatives to PFAS in food packaging fulfills the requirements of RCW 70A.222.070, which restricts the manufacture, distribution, and sale in Washington of “food packaging to which per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) chemicals have been intentionally added in any amount” if safer alternatives to PFAS in food packaging are identified.

Submitting this report begins a two-year timeline that will restrict PFAS in four types of food packaging beginning in early 2023.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
