Cancer Scare At Kalamazoo Area Chipotles
Not a week goes by that I don't run into a Chipotle joke about the food making you sick or giving you intestinal problems. I think we're all familiar with the story that spawned all of the wisecracks. The truth is, Chipotle offers very tasty offerings and many people enjoy their fare everyday. Getting sick from the food temporarily is one thing but getting sick for want could be more serious circumstances is another.
There's a report on fox17online.com revealing that it's not the food at Chipotle that is causing concern but rather the Chipotle bowls. The New Food Company reports that the Chipotle fiber bowls are exposed to chemicals that can cause cancer. These chemicals are all-to familiar to the Kalamazoo area. According to their study, the bowls are treated with...wait for it...PFAS! That's right PFAS! The treatment is designed to help the bowls hold hot, wet and greasy foods. Didn't see that one coming. Chipotle released the following statement:
“We are committed to using safe and sustainable food packaging and only partner with suppliers who make fluorochemical sciences and food safety a top priority. These suppliers operate under strict guidelines set forth by the FDA, and have all provided Chipotle with certification that all raw material and finished pulp products fully meet regulatory requirements.”
Don't get anything in a bowl I guess!!!
