There are reports of PFAS accumulating in the eggs of chickens housed at a fire station in Adelaide. While it is possible for PFAS to accumulate in eggs sourced from chickens in your backyard, it is unlikely to be a route of PFAS exposure for residents in the West Lakes region due to implementation of previous mitigation and remediation recommendations used to manage historic cadmium contamination in the region.

If mitigation and remediation measures recommended in 2001 for properties where sewage sludge is known to exist have not been maintained at your property, avoid consumption of the eggs sourced from your backyard until the measures are restored.
