New testing of paper food packaging from top fast-food chains found fluorine levels suggesting PFAS treatment in nearly half of samples—including a Big Mac box as well as a McDonald’s fry bag and cookie bag. Read the report here.
We’re not lovin’ it.
PFAS have been linked to increased risk for certain cancers, immune system suppression, and reduced birth weight. When people eat food from this packaging, they may end up ingesting some of these chemicals too.
And when McDonald’s toxic trash goes into a landfill or incinerator, it can contaminate our air and water.
Tell McDonald’s: Your customers don’t want these chemicals in their food. And no one wants them polluting the environment forever, either!
