PFAS are toxic, synthetic chemicals used to manufacture many common household products. PFAS is an acronym that represents a family of more than 3000 similar contaminants.

PFAS are associated with a number of health risks when they accumulate in the human body over time and when they are highly concentrated in food and water.
