Food Safety Goes Beyond Plastics

Become More Food Safety Savvy…. there’s one way you can  protect your family’s health and that’s by staying  informed about incidences of food contamination that might have a direct impact on you.  Given the world market, avoiding contaminated foods like:

  • Melamine, a compound found in baby formula and others foods imported from China
  • Bisphenol, a chemical found in plastic bottles that leeches into the beverage

makes staying healthy a bigger challenge for every conscious consumer. Just in the past 2 years alone, the US government has issued nearly 500 food safety alerts, which were not shared with consumer media outlets, so we would have no way of knowing what to steer clear of.

Luckily, there are 2 ways to stay informed.

  • Become a member of USFoodSafety.com. You will receive up-to-date email messages on food safety alerts and food related recalls, with balanced information and scientifically based advise on food handling and food contamination issues.

  • Check the FDA website regularly for current food safety alerts.

As for melamine, you can avoid any foods imported from China for a while, and you can buy Bispenol-free containers that are reusable, providing an eco-friendly solution. Two easy options:  Nalgene-based bottles and Stainless Steel.
