Legislatures, regulators and plaintiffs are increasingly focused on a broader range of PFAS chemicals, beyond PFOA and PFOS, in personal care products and consumer health products—despite the limited scientific evidence of these chemicals' effects, if any, on the environment or human health. As a result, many businesses are left wondering whether their products might contain any PFAS chemicals (as broadly defined by legislatures) or be susceptible to PFAS-based challenges, and how they can move forward without jeopardizing their product lines.
