Environmental health groups are calling on Boise-based Albertsons to stop carrying items that contain a potentially harmful chemical.

The groups tested 10 items for signs of PFAS, which are used to make things resistant to grease or water. Waterproof fabrics and wax-coated paper can contain PFAS, for example. The groups found signs of these chemicals in cake plates, dental floss, bags of organic microwave popcorn and a take-out container from Albertsons and Safeway stores.
