"Bumble Bee Foods is recalling some canned, smoked clams because they contain high levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
The voluntary recall, announced July 6, comes after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found detectable PFAS levels in samples of the product. The recall affects only 3.75-oz. cans of Bumble Bee Smoked Clams with the UPC label 8660075234. The clams came from a manufacturer in China, the company said.
PFAS are a group of manmade chemicals used in many products, including nonstick cookware, water-repellent clothing, stain-resistant fabrics and carpets, some cosmetics, some firefighting foams, and products that resist grease, water, and oil."
