Don’t use clingfilm for storing food

Stop using clingfilm for food storage


  1. Avoid clingfilm when storing foods. It contains plasticisers that can leach into food. The FSA says to avoid wrapping high-fat foods such as cheeses in clingfilm, and not to use it in contact with food in a microwave.
  2. Wash and peel all fresh fruit and vegetables to reduce exposure to pesticides – even if it claims to be ‘ready washed’. Then discard the outer leaves of leafy vegetables.
  3. Increase the proportion of seasonal produce you eat. It will reduce your exposure to anti-fungal and anti-bacterial chemicals commonly used to extend shelf-life.
