Most consumers do not pay attention to food packaging safety


       "Is your food safe? Let's see if the packaging is qualified!" This is a sentence often used by the Canadian Federal Food Inspection Agency to remind consumers. However, the reporter found after investigating that although many people understand the importance of packaging, many people do not understand what is qualified.

       "What kind of food packaging do you think is safe?" On January 15, the reporter randomly asked 12 consumers in a large supermarket chain in Shijingshan, Beijing. Among them, 8 consumers said that they had not considered this issue; 3 consumers thought that “whatever you buy in a big supermarket should be fine”; 1 consumer said that he would choose delicate and clean packaging and printing, and that You will never buy a packaged food that is crude at a glance.

      According to experts, food packaging usually refers to food containers, packaging materials, or items that directly contact food. In the concept of many countries, food packaging safety is equivalent to food safety, and it is the same in our country. However, the safety of food packaging has not attracted enough attention compared with the food directly eaten in the mouth.

      On the one hand, in order to reduce costs, companies may cut corners or even use banned materials, and the warnings are not eye-catching enough, such as an exploded can of cola, it is likely that the wall of the can is too thin, resulting in excessive pressure and burst; On the one hand, consumers are not too concerned about the product description on the packaging. In addition to checking whether it is damaged, they ignore the QS mark, precautions, and even the production date of the company's food production license.

The institute conducts tests. The researchers conducted two sets of tests using the fire detection method and the high oil temperature hot melt performance detection method. Fire detection method: In a special laboratory cabinet, the researchers lit PE plastic bags and PVC plastic bags respectively. The former burned quickly after being ignited, and the flame was yellow. When it burned, it was like a candle with melt dripping on the ground; the latter flame It is yellow-green, flame-retardant and non-flammable. High oil temperature hot melt performance detection method: PVC plastic bags begin to deform when the oil temperature reaches 90℃, and their components will melt as the oil temperature rises; when the oil temperature exceeds 100℃, PE plastic bags will also slow down Slowly begin to soften and deform, and melt and melt as the oil temperature rises.   The staff said that general consumers can judge whether plastic bags are poisonous by hand: non-toxic plastic bags are milky white or colorless and transparent, and feel lubricious when touched; toxic plastic bags are cloudy or light yellow in color, and feel sticky.    remind    Use plastic bags carefully for food    Zhu Yi, an associate professor at the School of Food Science and Nutritional Engineering, China Agricultural University, told the Yangcheng Evening News reporter that food-grade plastic bags are relatively safe to contain food.
