Michigan Officials: Don’t Touch Toxic Foam on Waterways

The state of Michigan is warning people to avoid toxic foam that could be found floating on some lakes, rivers and streams.

The Department of Health and Human Services says anyone who touches foam from PFAS contaminated areas should wash it off.

Those chemicals could make their way into a person’s body if it’s not.

Experts say levels of PFAS in foam can vary, but the chemicals are often more highly concentrated in foam than in standing water.
