Plastics win out in ConAgra pallet wars
from European Plastics News
U.S. food giant ConAgra has plumped for plastics in a very public spat -- switching to plastic pallets manufactured iGPS from wooden alternatives from Australia-based Brambles. The news comes after a pallet war was played out in the media by Brambles and iGPS. Brambles had claimed that the fire retardant used in plastic pallets -- deca-bromine -- causes cancer, while iGPS said wooden pallets carried food poisoning bacteria.
