FDA Announces Intent to Collect Data and Information on PFAS in Food Containers.

King & Spalding

On July 20, 2022, FDA announced that it is opening a docket to obtain information about the use of PFAS in food packaging, including collection of data on food packaging products that contain PFAS, review of potential exposures that could result from such packaging, and an evaluation of the health effects. This announcement follows the Consumer Reports article that we reviewed earlier in the year and litigation that followed shortly thereafter. Any submissions and data must be submitted by October 18, 2022. We will be following the docket closely for any new data and information on PFAS in food packaging.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
