As an initial survey of human exposure to perfluorinated acids through food consumption in China, seven types of seafood collected from fish markets in two coastal cities were analyzed. Nine perfluorinated compounds were determined using HPLC coupled with ESI-MS/MS. Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) was the predominant fluorochemical and was found in all 27 seafood samples, including fish, molluscs, crabs, shrimp, oysters, mussels, and clams. Concentrations of PFOS in seafood samples ranged from… CONTINUE READING
