The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been accused of failing to inform the public about the serious health threat from per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) present in plastic containers that have been fluorinated by Inhance Technologies USA. The Center for Environmental Health (CEH) and Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) are calling on the EPA to fully and publicly disclose the health risks associated with PFAS from fluorinated containers and take action to make all relevant information available to the public. The groups have also supplemented their letter to senior EPA officials with a Freedom of Information Act request for all information related to the formation of PFAS during the fluorination of plastic containers by Inhance and exposure to PFAS during the distribution and use of these containers. CEH and PEER have filed a lawsuit to prohibit further PFAS manufacture and distribution of contaminated containers by Inhance.
