Description Washington’s prohibition on the manufacture, sale, or distribution of certain food packaging prevents manufacturers from selling or distributing certain types of food packaging with per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) intentionally added to them. This resource will help you understand if these restrictions apply to your product. It will also help you assess your supply chain and determine if any of your product’s components contain intentionally added PFAS.
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.
