CR letter to General Mills on plastic chemicals in Annie’s Organic Cheesy Ravioli and its other food products

Consumer Reports letter to General Mills calling on the company to reduce the levels of plasticizers in its products, especially Annie’s Organic Cheesy Ravioli, which had the highest levels of phthalates in CR’s recent tests. Phthalates are a plasticizer, a chemical used to make plastics more flexible and durable, and have been linked to a long list of health concerns, even at very low levels.
