Subject: Brewing in garbage pails
Date: 1989-06-12 14:33:18 GMT

I have no first hand knowledge, but am as willing to spread rumours
and disinformation as the next net.poster...the subject of storing
food in garbage pails recently came up on alt.sca, which not all of
you read, and several people warned against using "non-food grade"
plastic for food--apparently some of the plasticizers used to keep the
plastic from cracking can be harmful, and can be leached into food.

Sounds good to me. I suppose that if the FDA regulates plastic food
containers (which they do--my contact lens case has an FDA approval
for exactly that) there is probably a reasonably good reason...
