Quick Reference


PBBs were used as fire retardants to impregnate fabrics to render them less flammable but were found to be carcinogenic to animals and banned. The chemicals were responsible for a regional episode of animal poisoning in Michigan in 1978, when a batch of PBB-contaminated cattle feed caused a bizarre wasting disease in cattle and equally bizarre neuropsychiatric symptoms in people who drank milk or ate meat from the affected cattle.
