There is evidence suggesting that the compost-based, eco-friendly food packaging used by some carryout restaurants and delis contain toxic PFAS chemicals which have been demonstrated to leach into the food–and therefore into the consumer’s body.
Scientists are calling on corporations and regulators to stop unnecessarily exposing the public to potentially deleterious chemicals like PFAS.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just released the findings of its own study of the presence of toxic industrial chemical PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalykyl substances) in food and found that it is, as numerous independent university and research institute studies have reported, leaching into the U.S. food supply.
Another state has filed a lawsuit against Big Chemical companies 3M, Dupont and others over toxic chemicals used in food packaging and other products that have ended up contaminating the public drinking water.
