A Note About PCBs, Dioxin, and Furan Contamination
PCBs, dioxins, and furans are unreasonably dangerous and are known to cause or contribute to cause significant health problems in both humans and animals. PCBs and dioxins cause cancer and other serious and life-threatening diseases.
Furan is an organic byproduct of materials containing pentose, such as pine-wood. It is a highly toxic, flammable liquid that is believed to cause cancer from excessive contact or inhalation. People working with wood products often suffer serious illness from exposure to furans.
