Louis Celt started this petition to McDonald's and

PFAS in food wrappers are harming your health and the environment! These toxic chemicals that can lead to cancer are in food wrappers for Big Macs and other popular items. McDonald's agreed to phase PFAS out of all products by 2025, but that is just not soon enough! Any ingestion of these products is harmful, let alone four more years. Sign this petition to tell them you want McDonald's to phase these chemicals out by 2022!

A little background:

Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of manmade toxic and very persistent chemicals, meaning that they do not leave your body or the environment, they accumulate and can lead to severe human health effects and environmental pollution. There are strong associations between PFAS and liver damage, thyroid disease, decreased fertility, high cholesterol, obesity,  AND testicular, kidney, prostate and ovarian cancers. They are used in food contact materials for their grease resistant and heat retaining properties. As well as being used in most water and stain resistant clothing, nonstick cookware, paints, firefighting foams and more.
