Frequent Questions

Should I be concerned about perchlorate in food?

The Food and Drug Administration stresses that consumers should maintain a healthy diet consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which emphasizes eating a variety of foods across all food groups each day. EPA's exposure evaluations, which establish health based levels for perchlorate, account for the amount of perchlorate one may consume in in their diet.
