Lawsuit filed in California against use of PFAS by large-scale chemicals manufacturers

November 10, 2022

The Attorney General of California Rob Bonta sued chemical firms like 3M and DuPont on November 10, 2022, for using dangerous "forever chemicals" in their marketed products (known as PFAS) that damage human health and hurt and deplete the state's natural resources. In the complaint, Bonta claims that producers continued to make PFAS while knowing they were hazardous and concealing their dangers from the general public. The California lawsuit demands that 18 firms pay damages and cover the cost of treating the state's drinking water and wastewater systems for PFAS. Additionally, it requests funding for medical monitoring, safe chemical disposal, and PFAS environmental testing.
