Steelworkers lead drive to warn about chemical used in Teflon

Feb 22, 2006 | AP

A coalition including the United Steelworkers and several environmental groups is asking the state to list a chemical used in the production of Teflon and other products as a cancer-causing substance.

The groups have filed a petition with the state under Proposition 65, a 1986 law that requires companies to notify the public about potentially dangerous toxins.

If successful, California could mandate warnings to consumers who buy cooking equipment, outdoor wear, microwave popcorn bags and other products made using perfluorooctanoic acid, known as P-F-O-A. Last week, a group of scientific advisers to the Environmental Protection Agency recommended that the chemical should be considered a likely carcinogen.

Manufacturer DuPont says it will fight the petition effort.
