Journal Article: Occurrence of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in garden produce at homes with a history of PFAS-contaminated drinking water

Highlights –

  •  PFAS in garden produce were measured at homes with past/ongoing water contamination.
  •  Short-chain PFAS in water impacted produce levels more than long-chain PFAS in soil.
  •  PFAS concentrations differed by plant part; many PFAS were highest in florets.
  •  Results demonstrate PFAS entry into food chain under real-world conditions.
