By Austyn Frostad on

PET has a broad application in the food and beverage industry, serving as primary packaging for numerous items, including soft drinks, juices, ready-to-drink teas and water as well as food items such as ketchup or peanut butter.  PET has been safely used for many years and has met FDA’s rigorous standards, ensuring its safety as food and beverage container.  The FDA has conducted research reviews and concluded that PET containers do not pose health risk to consumers and do not leach harmful amounts of substances into their contents under foreseeable conditions of use.
