Assembly Bill 246, a bill to remove toxic chemicals from menstrual products introduced by Assemblymember Diane Papan, D-San Mateo, was approved May 15 by the California Assembly by a vote of 64-0.

In California, perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances class chemicals have already been removed from clothing, children’s toys, cookware and food packaging but remain in many menstrual products. AB 246 will remove these chemicals from menstrual products, according to Papan’s office.
