California forever chemicals workplace rightsForever chemicals cases involve complex issues and require an experienced environmental law attorney who knows how local, regional and federal environmental regulations apply.

“Forever chemicals” is a colloquial term often used to refer to a group of synthetic chemicals known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). These chemicals are called “forever chemicals” because they are extremely persistent in the environment and do not break down easily, leading to long-lasting contamination.

Forever chemicals have been used in a wide range of industrial and consumer products for decades due to their unique properties, such as water and grease resistance, making them useful in applications like non-stick cookware, waterproof clothing, firefighting foams, and more.

Consumer rights regarding exposure to PFAS and other “forever chemicals” are similar to those concerning other hazardous substances, and they generally include the following aspects:

  • Right to Information: Consumers have the right to be informed about the presence of forever chemicals in products they purchase. This includes labeling requirements and disclosure of forever chemical content in consumer goods, especially those that come into contact with food, water, or the body.
  • Right to Safety: Consumers have the right to expect that products they use are safe and do not pose health risks due to PFAS exposure. Manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products meet safety standards and do not contain harmful levels of forever chemical.
  • Recourse for Harm: If consumers suffer harm as a result of forever chemical exposure from products or environments, they may have legal recourse to seek compensation for medical expenses, damages, and other related costs. Lawsuits can be filed against responsible parties, such as manufacturers or entities responsible for environmental contamination.
  • Advocacy and Regulation: Consumer advocacy groups and individuals have the right to advocate for stricter regulations on PFAS , forever chemicals, and similar hazardous chemicals. They can work toward stronger environmental protection laws, better labeling practices, and enforcement of existing regulations.
  • Access to Safe Products: Consumers have the right to choose products that are free from harmful chemicals, including PFAS. This may involve supporting businesses and products that prioritize safety, sustainability, and transparency in their supply chains.
  • Environmental Protection: Consumers also have the right to live in an environment free from contamination by harmful chemicals like PFAS. Advocacy for clean water, air, and soil and supporting policies and initiatives aimed at reducing environmental contamination are important aspects of consumer rights.

Consumers can support efforts to monitor and regulate forever chemical use and contamination while making informed choices to reduce their own exposure. If there are concerns about forever chemical exposure or contamination, consulting with local environmental agencies and healthcare professionals is advisable.
