Frequent Questions

How do PCBs persist in the environment and bioaccumulate in people?

PCBs continue to be present indoors in buildings, and outdoors in cities and even remote wilderness locations more than thirty years after their production was banned in the United States. PCBs are stored in the fat of animals and humans, which means that humans may be exposed to PCBs through their diet when eating fish, dairy products or meat.
