Toxic threats

Our food shouldn’t be wrapped in toxic packaging

I A Scrabble |

Toxic PFAS “forever chemicals” are still widely used in common consumer items such as food packaging — despite having been linked to liver damage, thyroid disease and even cancer.

PFAS can make their way into our water, air, soil and eventually even our bodies — a recent study found PFAS in breast milk at nearly 2,000 times the level considered safe for drinking water.

A grease-resistant fast food package is a small benefit compared to the devastating impact of PFAS on our health — especially when there are safer alternatives available. Will you join our call for state lawmakers to protect public health and ban toxic PFAS in food packaging?
