Newsletter on PFAS from Extension’s Fitzgerald cited by BDN

Bangor Daily News referenced a University of Maine Cooperative Extension newsletter on a group of chemicals known as PFAS written by Caragh Fitzgerald, an associate Extension educator for agriculture and an associate Extension professor. Fitzgerald wrote that uncoated corrugated cardboard is less likely to contain PFAS, and any PFAS in it will likely be diluted by the surrounding soil if it is used in a garden. “If your garden is small, potential PFAS contributions from your home-grown produce may be very small compared to PFAS from other sources in your life,” she wrote.
