New Report on PFAS chemicals in food packaging, 10/24/18 at 1pm EST

On October 23, Safer Chemicals Health Families and Toxic-Free Future will release a new report, Take Out Toxics: PFAS Chemicals in Food Packaging. It discusses the results of testing food packaging and food contact materials from five of the nation’s largest grocery chains to see which were likely treated with PFAS chemicals. This class of toxic, highly persistent chemicals is often used to treat paper food packaging products for water and grease resistance. Treated materials can contaminate the food they come into contact with and, after being discarded, can contaminate landfills and compost. The use of PFAS to treat food packaging can lead to completely unnecessary long-term exposure to harmful chemicals.  Please join a webinar to learn about the test results, alternatives to PFAS-treated materials and recommendations for retailers and regulators.
