Send a message to Kroger and Wal-Mart
We are urging Kroger and Wal-Mart to take the lead in making sure the Teflon chemical "C8" is eliminated from food packaging. Please send an email to H. Lee Scott, President and CEO of Wal-Mart and Kroger CEO David Dillon. Some points to include:

Under pressure from consumers and the U.S. EPA, DuPont has just announced a phase-out of the Teflon chemical "C8," by the year 2015. The chemical, which is used to make non-stick and greaseproof coatings, can cause cancer and reproductive defects and has been found in the blood of 95% of Americans.

We urge Wal-Mart to use its considerable clout to ensure that the first order of business in the phase-out is to remove these chemicals from food packaging, such as microwave popcorn, candy wrappers, and frozen foods.

I do not want my family's health to be endangered by chemicals that the EPA has deemed to be unsafe.

Please ask your food suppliers to let Wal-Mart know how and when they will eliminate these dangerous chemicals from their packaging and switch to a safe substitute.
