Food packaging safety hazards product No. 6 cup cover is toxic and carcinogenic

according to the report of the voice of China evening peak, the new production capacity of the Chinese culture paper industry is almost zero. There is a saying in China that people should put food first and food safety first. In addition to the safety of food itself, the reliability of food packaging should not be ignored

today, the International Food Packaging Association released the 2014 food packaging safety hazard products and consumption warning in Beijing, as well as the market survey report on the quality and labeling of food related products, which shows that: it is necessary to be cautious in choosing products containing bisphenol A; If the sealed bottle cap is not sealed, it is difficult to ensure health and safety; Food packaged in non food bags; And many problems such as unreasonable design of cans and hidden dangers of direct drinking

dongjinshi, an expert on food safety and environmental protection and Secretary General of the International Food Packaging Association, introduced the quality and labeling of food related products and market research

dongjinshi: investigate two kinds of products in the market. One is all kinds of food packaging materials, such as plastic bags, fast food boxes, melamine tableware, fresh-keeping film, chopsticks. The arithmetic mean of the experimental results of each group of samples indicates whether the packaging information of these products meets the national requirements. This survey found that many enterprises do not mark, and some enterprises mark, and the target is inconsistent with their actual content, It is more about concealing the quality, that is, the unqualified quality also means the qualified quality information

in the investigation, Dong Jinshi especially told about the labeling of food additives on the packaging

dongjinshi: the standard of additives is not accurate. Now there are nearly 3000 kinds of food additives, and more than 1000 kinds of practical spices. Now many of our food are delicious. We try to prepare phenolic foam by heating and foaming. It looks good and smells good. In fact, most of it is the contribution of additives. But the credit is that consumers think they have spent money on good things. In fact, these additives may be harmful to our health, and some enterprises do not mark clearly. For example, some enterprises contain trans fatty acids, which are not marked. Then many cakes we eat are not real animal butter, but plant butter. We find that some large enterprises have wrong labels

in fact, each plastic container has an ID card, which is usually at the bottom of the plastic container. For example, there is a triangle at the bottom of the mineral water bottle, and then there will be a number on it. This number has seven numbers, and each number has instructions for use. Although No. 1, No. 4, No. 5, No. 6 and No. 7 in plastic packaging can be in contact with food, some can't put hot food, and some can only put cold drinks

ordered a hot drink in a KFC restaurant and asked the waiter what cap to use

waiter: both medium and small sizes

: is the cup cover not a sub number

waiter: 16 cold cup cover

: is this also used for hot drinks

waiter: I don't know

in our daily drinking, no matter the size of the cup cover, as long as the cup cover is made of polystyrene, it is called No. 6. No. 6 material is also commonly used in bowled instant noodles boxes, foam fast-food boxes, disposable beverage cups, etc. Is heating toxic? Dong Jinshi, Secretary General of the International Food Packaging Association, made a detailed explanation

dongjinshi: as far as No. 6 is concerned, its polystyrene can be used for food packaging, but when using hot drinks, due to the different temperature of heat, the plastic will have some small molecules when it is hot, such as ethylene monomer, and some color masterbatch inside, and the color will dissolve out. Therefore, the country has different application ranges for different plastics, and the recommended temperature for the application range of polystyrene is below 90 degrees
