Chipotle is under fire once again after a newly released report claims the bio-degradable trays used for their burrito bowls contain cancer causing chemicals.


The “New Food Economy” says it found the fiber bowls are exposed to chemicals that can lead to cancer.
The study says the bowls are treated with “PFAS” also called forever chemicals.
It helps bowls hold hot, wet, and greasy food but the EPA says those compounds do not break down in the human body and they can accumulate over time. 
The chemicals also seep into the soil as the bowls break down, leading to toxic compost.  
Some people say this new report is concerning. 
Chipotle issued this 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.”
