Subject Line: Protect my family from brain-damaging phthalates in mac and cheese
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Right now, the FDA’s science on toxic chemicals in our food is tragically out of date, putting families like mine at risk. Chemicals that disrupt our hormones, cause harm to our brains, and impair reproduction still appear on supermarket shelves and escape review by regulators. One example is ortho-phthalates, chemicals found in kid-friendly meals like mac and cheese. The FDA must urgently reassess the safety of such chemicals in our food.
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.
