WASHINGTON DC – Potentially harmful PFAS - the so-called "forever chemicals" - have been found in a wide range of textile products for babies and toddlers, according to new research commissioned by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) non-profit.

Laboratory tests found PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) in bedding, bibs, changing pads, clothing, nursing pillows, outerwear, pacifier clips, playmats and activity gyms, snack bags and soft toys.

Dubbed 'forever chemicals' because of their durability in the environment, PFAS have been linked with a series of major health risks including liver damage, thyroid disease, decreased fertility, high cholesterol, obesity, hormone suppression and cancer.
