PFAS are widely employed in several fields, such as domestic use items, medical devices, paper and general packaging materials, fabrics manufacturing, automotive, and so on… They are a critical issue for environment. They are as well a very critical issue for their presence in food.
Indeed, a lot of PFAS-containing materials bump into food: food packaging, cookware (for instance, non-stick pans), single use plates, glasses and silverware (materials later released in the environment…) Food packaging, hence, become a sort of link between environment and food safety.
