Subject Line: Protect my family from PFAS in fast food
Body: Dear Senator/Representative,
As your constituent, I urge you to protect our food from toxic chemicals by supporting the Food Chemical Reassessment Act of 2021.
Right now, the FDA does not systematically review its past approvals of food packaging and processing chemicals based on the current evidence. As a result, harmful chemicals continue to appear on our dinner tables.
For example, PFAS — the nearly indestructible class of “forever chemicals” linked to cancer, weight gain, immune system damage, and reproductive problems — continue to contaminate our food through packaging, including the hamburger wrappers and boxes distributed by fast food chains nationwide.
By passing this bill, you will require the FDA to fulfill its duties to protect our food supply and help ensure our food is safe to eat. Please put the safety of American families first and pass this much-needed piece of legislation.
By taking action, you’ll also receive Environmental Working Group, Environmental Defense Fund, Consumer Reports, Breast Cancer Prevention Partners, Healthy Babies Bright Futures, Earth Justice and Defend Our Health email updates, tips, action alerts and promotions to support our work. You can opt-out at any time.
