Why are people suing PFAS manufacturers?

PFAS are a group of “forever chemicals” that are used to make Teflon non-stick pans, firefighting foam, grease-resistant food packaging, and many other household goods. In 2001, plaintiffs filed a class action lawsuit against PFAS manufacturer DuPont for failing to disclose to nearby residents that the creek near its production plant contained an alarming amount of PFOA, a cancerous PFAS chemical no longer made in the United States.

Today, PFAS manufacturers DuPont and 3M have been targeted in thousands of water contamination and firefighting foam lawsuits. A settlement of at least $11.5 billion dollars was recently announced, but this amount could still go up to $13.7 billion.
