San Francisco Partner Tom Lee recently co-presented a webinar on the regulation of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in food and food packaging under California’s Proposition 65.
The July 18 program focused on the historic use of PFAS in food packaging, the foods that have been found to contain PFAS, and the ways in which PFAS can make their way into food products. The program also discussed compliance strategies, and ways that impacted members of the food industry can manage and allocate the risk of enforcement actions.
Lee is a member of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner’s Environmental and Commercial Litigation Client Service Groups. He has extensive experience counseling retail and manufacturing clients on their Prop 65 compliance and defending enforcement actions brought against them. He regularly advises clients on enforcement trends, changes in regulations and changes in safe harbor levels, all of which are essential to ensure compliance and avoid enforcement actions. As part of those efforts, Lee has conducted compliance audits and provided compliance training to update clients’ testing protocols and warning labels. Lee also has experience advising clients on their potential liability, and compliance strategies based on the developing regulation of PFAS.
Lee presented this webinar with Dr. Sarahann Marie Rackl, a senior managing scientist at Exponent.
