news: the lifting of the ban on disposable foamed plastic tableware has once again triggered a heated discussion on plastic tableware. The national mandatory standard for plastic shopping bags stipulates that the raw materials for plastic bags used to hold directly imported food must meet the food-grade requirements, and the QS mark and'For food'Or'Food Special'Wait for the words. However, the reporter found that although the regulations have been issued for nearly five years, the practice of using ordinary plastic bags to set bowls or directly containing food is still popular in Jinan food stalls and some restaurants.

edible plastic bags

The reporter saw that most of the food and beverage stalls on the streets of Jinan existed'Bagging'Phenomenon. In particular, on some stalls selling rice noodles, wontons, etc. with soup and pasta, shopkeepers set the bowls in plastic bags one by one in advance, and some consumers put the food directly in plastic bags when they buy them. The on-site diners will eat when they are served, and those who want to take them away will go away. This has become a common dining phenomenon.

on the snack street opposite the Experimental Middle School in Shandong province, almost a dozen snack stalls repeated an action after noon: every time the previous group of students finished eating, the shopkeeper threw his bowl bag with leftovers into the nearby garbage can, and then quickly covered it with plastic bags without any washing, giving a group of students food.

The restaurant in a business park in Jinan High-tech zone where our reporter's station is located is a dining place with much better facilities, conditions and business types than street food stalls, there are no fewer than a thousand people eating every day. Even so, during the meal time at least once a day, the reporter will face countless examples of using plastic bags to cover bowls or directly holding food.

The reporter once questioned the restaurant contractor, but he said that bagging is clean and easy. Especially at noon, because there are too many diners who don't have time to wash dishes, there is often a phenomenon of waiting for the diners. It is much easier to put a plastic bag on the bowl. Since the food is not in contact with the dishes, the used bag is removed and replaced with a new one, which is nearly twice as fast as washing with water. The contractor told reporters that the plastic bags they used were newly bought from the wholesale market and could be assured.

The above-mentioned convenient methods of merchants have won the approval of many consumers. The reporter asked a young man who used a bowl with a plastic bag to eat rice noodles. He said that there is no place to pick up water on the food stall, even if the bowl is not clean. Besides, even if the larger restaurant tableware is not clean, it is better to set a plastic bag. Questioning whether ordinary plastic bags can hold food, a shop owner selling rice noodles in the community restaurant told reporters that he used a plastic bag that specializes in food. However, the reporter saw that most of the plastic bags he used were very thin and broke, and there was no QS or'Food Special'The sign.

is it safe to cover the bowl with plastic bags? The reporter telephoned relevant experts from Jinan CDC. He said that the plastic bags used in many food stalls are not plastic bags for food. After this kind of plastic bag is heated, some low molecular substances can be easily transferred to food. Moreover, some inferior plastic bags may be regenerated from waste plastics and contain a large amount of harmful substances such as heavy metals. Once the heat enters the food, it will cause damage to the internal organs of the human body.

In response to the above phenomenon, the relevant person in charge of the Jinan Food and Drug Administration department responsible for market supervision said that it is safe to hold food in a plastic bag with a bowl, and what standard plastic bags can hold food, all should consult the quality supervision department. The snack street stalls originally belonged to the road market and were supervised by the Urban Management Law Enforcement Bureau. They were only responsible for the supervision of regular hotels.

and relevant experts from Jinan quality supervision department said that plastic bags can contain food and cannot contain food. Certified enterprises produce QS or'Food Special' It is certainly no problem to use the marked plastic bag to hold cold food, but whether it can be heated and how many degrees it can be heated depends on the material of the plastic bag used and the relevant standards. Whether the plastic bags used in Jinan food stalls can hold food, the expert said that it needs to be identified before it can be determined. ' However, judging from the fact that there are few applications for identification, the quality and safety of these plastic bags cannot be guaranteed'.
