(New York, NY) -- New York Senator Chuck Schumer is calling on the Food and Drug Administration to investigate the chemicals in fast food packaging.
He says the agency needs to see if there are any toxic properties in items like sandwich wrappers and soda cups. Schumer says chemicals found in packing such as fry containers have been linked to some serious medical conditions.
The lawmaker says the FDA has a responsibility to consumers to make sure the food they buy is safe.
