Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a family of approximately 4700 synthetic chemicals used in a wide array of products and industrial processes, including non-stick cookware, clothing, carpets, and industrial fire-fighting foam.
PFAS chemicals have been used in consumer products and fire-fighting foam on industrial sites and military bases. Exposure is associated with health impacts including cancer, thyroid disease, ulcerative colitis and birth defects. A new state task force was established by Governor Wolf to develop strategies to address this issue and they want to hear from you.
