Toxicity factor of freezer bags?? on 05/11/2007 21:40:00 MDT Print View

Hi folks,

I'm checking in to see if anyone has any idea about the toxicity factor involved in eating out of a freezer bag -- especially after boiling or hot water has been added.

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks,
Lee

Lee,

I wrote a blog entry on this awhile back, with lots of links and information:

Freezer bags do not contain Dioxin and are food grade plastic. Dioxin is what one wants to avoid.
