PFAS found in organic eggs in Denmark

The environmental contaminant PFAS has been found in organic egg yolks in Denmark. Especially children who eat many organic eggs are at risk. The substances are most likely transferred via fishmeal, which is included in feed for the hens. This was found in a study from the DTU National Food Institute carried out in collaboration with the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration.
