OEHHA to List PFOA on Prop. 65 List
The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has announced that it intends to add perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) to the list of substances known to cause cancer or reproductive harm under the state’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Prop. 65). PFOA, known as a “forever chemical,” can be found in nonstick surfaces and food packaging, among other items. OEHHA will accept comments on the determination until May 3, 2021.
