The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published a final rule banning three chemicals said to be toxic normally used in many pizza boxes and other food packaging.
Three kinds of perfluoroalkyl ethyls, a class of exceptionally common chemicals used in water- and grease-proof pizza boxes and other food packaging, because new data show there's "no longer a reasonable certainty" that they don't cause birth defects or have other cancer.
These chemicals are also found in microwave popcorn bags, fast-food packaging and pet food bags. The coatings prevent oil and grease from leaking through packaging.
Well you might be saying, so what doesn't cause cancer these days... but it's our job to keep you up to date with all food related news.
