Condiment containers are increasingly becoming a commodity in the US, but not for all of us.
A new report from the consumer advocacy group Food and Water Watch (WWF) indicates that many Americans are buying plastic condiment container products for personal use.
The study, which was released on Tuesday, found that the majority of Americans were buying containers that have at least two layers of plastic on them, which includes containers that are made of glass or aluminum.
This is a common practice among food manufacturers who sell containers that can be reused for many more uses, including cooking food, cleaning food, and cleaning your refrigerator, according to WWF.
The research also found that about a third of Americans have bought plastic containers for their personal use, though it’s unclear how many of those consumers are actually using the containers.
This includes people who do not use the containers, or who use them for personal consumption, but simply for convenience, the report said.
This research underscores how consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about the health and safety of the plastic containers used in their kitchens and bathrooms.
The report comes after the FDA reported last year that plastic containers are being used in the manufacture of more than 300,000 items that include cooking utensils, baking pans, and utensil trays.
The FDA also recently issued new guidelines on the use of plastic containers, which could result in stricter limits on the types of food containers used and the amount of plastic used in them.
A previous report from WWF found that plastic used to make plastic water bottles had higher cancer risks than glass water bottles.
The WWF report suggests that the plastic used for condiments in the United States may be becoming more toxic and unhealthy.
“The FDA’s recent findings suggest that the US has the largest plastic-to-meat ratio in the world,” said Dr. Mark J. Pfeiffer, a co-author of the report.
“In this country, we use so many condiments and condiments-toppings combinations that the food industry must come up with a solution.
Consumers need to have confidence that they are getting the best condiment product that meets their health and environmental needs,” he added.
