|Description||In 2018, the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) conducted a study to assess the levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in consumer products. A total of 142 samples, consisting of 130 product component samples and 12 collection and processing quality control samples, were tested for 29 PFAS analytes and 19 total oxidizable precursors.
Products in the following categories were tested:
• Automotive, Building, and Cleaning Products
• Children’s Clothing and Textiles
• Cosmetics and Personal Care Products
• Food Contact Material
This short summary provides details of the testing methods, including product collection and data quality, for the PFAS 2018 product testing study. This information was developed to accompany the PFAS 2018 product testing data available in Ecology’s product testing database by searching “PFAS in Washington State Products – 2018.”
