What products contain PBDE?

PBDE, which stands for polybrominated diphenyl ethers, are a group of flame retardant chemicals that were commonly used in various products. However, due to their harmful effects on human health and the environment, their use has been significantly restricted or banned in many countries, including Australia.

In the past, PBDEs were often found in items such as electronics, furniture, mattresses, and textiles. They were added to these products to reduce the risk of fire. However, studies have shown that PBDEs can accumulate in our bodies and have been linked to adverse health effects, including developmental issues and hormone disruption. As a result, manufacturers have shifted towards using safer alternatives, and regulations have been put in place to limit the presence of PBDEs in consumer products. Therefore, it is unlikely that you will find PBDEs in products available on the market today, as stringent measures have been taken to protect consumers and the environment.
