Safer Food Packaging Tips
Avoid canned foods when possible, choose fresh or frozen instead
Purchase canned foods only from companies that fully disclose the identity and safety of their can linings
Choose safer packaging such as paper, glass, tetra packs or food packaged in #1, #2, #4 or #5 plastics
Avoid microwave popcorn and grease resistant food packaging which often contains PFCs.
What's a Tetra pack? Tetra packs, commonly used for kid's juice boxes, are made primarily of paperboard with thin layers of LDPE plastic and aluminum foil. More food is being packaged in Tetra packs, such as beans, soup and broth.
