A California law enacted last year which prohibits the use of PFAS in juvenile products, including children’s mattresses and went into effect this week is being amended to add other products including (mattress protectors) to its PFAS ban. California AB 347 would extend this prohibition to several additional products, including mattress protectors (including protectors intended for both adults and children), effective January 1, 2025. 

The bill passed the Assembly last month and is now being considered by the Senate Appropriations Committee.
