Outlook on PFAS in 2023

Last year, we saw increased litigation on a topic known as PFAS or “forever chemicals” that have been found in soil, water, and even foodservice packaging. As 2023 begins, we anticipate even more federal regulation and litigation involving restaurants, food and beverage companies, and suppliers.

Please join Laura Abshire, Director of Sustainability Policy for the National Restaurant Association, and legal experts from Law Firm Partner Steptoe for an engaging webinar discussing the heightened scrutiny surrounding these “forever chemicals”. The webinar will specifically address:

  • Overview of PFAS Chemistry and FDA Regulation
  • State PFAS Food Packaging Bans, Regulatory Considerations and Enforcement
  • Summary of PFAS Litigation Trends and Environmental Considerations
