Tell Congress to protect our kids and foods from toxic chemicals

Subject Line: Protect my family from TBHQ in snacks

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 grocery store shelves.

    For example, TBHQ, a food preservative that could harm the immune system, is still used to prolong the shelf life of Pop-Tarts, Rice Krispies Treats, Cheez-Its, and other popular snacks enjoyed by American families

    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.
