Are Pouched Foods Safe?
Last fall while browsing the promotions page of Blogher, I came across a comment on a Capri Sun post. The commenter said that they no longer purchase the producted after reports of mold were made. This sparked my curiosity and researched the claim. Turns out it was true. To my surprise, even more food products are being packaged in this method without concern.
In doing research for my lastest post, Are Food & Drink Pouches Safe?, I discovered that the Capri Sun company has went back on their orginal statements and are now creating clear panels on their packaging.
The many baby food companies using this method of packaging doesn't seem to be concerned about the mold issue or making any attempts to alter their packaging. Eventhough, reports of mold has been reported in these products as well.
Empting each package of the product into another container would defeat the purpose of the easy to carry, individual sized products. So why haven't these companies addressed this issue? I think it's irresponsible for companies to put our children's health at risk. This is a valid problem and they should take the initiative to resolve it without the consumer demanding it.
