On May 22-23, 1975, a meeting of the Lake Michigan Toxic Substances Committee was called to discuss the concerns of the states and Federal agencies related to problems with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). At the conclusion of this meeting a number of concensus conclusions were drawn and a recommendation was made to ban nationally all domestic and imported PCBs destined for use other than in transformers and capacitors and that even that use be critically reviewed in light of currently available or potential replacement products. This report presents evidence to support the conclusions drawn and the recommendation.
