In the summer of 2022, the EPA conducted a study of PFAS in fish from lakes across the U.S. The agency will correlate the results from these tissue samples with the PFAS found in blood samples taken from the people who rely on these lakes as a source of food. This data will serve as guidance for local, state, and Tribal fish advisory programs.
Local health and natural resource agencies are issuing “Do Not Consume” orders for game and fish. Farmers, from commercial produce producers to community gardeners, are waking up to the dangers of using biosolids as soil amendments thanks to potential PFAS contamination. PFAS has even been detected in common pesticides used in agriculture. Pace® provides testing services for plant and animal tissues that can help you keep your community safe.
Plant and animal tissues are more complex than other sample types, so you’ll want to choose a lab partner with the right experience and capabilities. Pace® offers three primary test methods for biota.
