Protect Children from Forever Chemicals

PFAS or “forever chemicals” have been linked to cancers, allergies, diabetes, and birth defects. New EPA guidelines confirm there is virtually no safe level of PFAS in drinking water. Forever chemicals are used in a variety of consumer goods including cookware, clothing, dental floss and children’s products. HF552 and SF2222 would prohibit PFAS in products designed for infants and children under 12, such as crib mattresses, booster seats, infant carriers, highchairs, and strollers.

Message: PFAS have been linked to serious health hazards. Please protect our children by prohibiting forever chemicals in products such as mattresses, car seats, strollers, and high chairs. I urge you to support HF552 and SF2222.
