And the manufacturers of non-toxic biodegradable plastic bags to introduce exemptions and support and other preferential policies to reduce their manufacturing costs.
Through the inspection of the municipal health and quality inspection departments, the reporter also learned that many of the plastic bags widely used in the vegetable market are recycled plastic products, and recycling and processing are made of waste plastic collected from garbage stations, industrial wastes and medical plastic discarded by medical institutions. Food packaged in poor plastic bags is often easy to spoil, people eat this kind of spoiled food, easy to cause vomiting, diarrhea and other food poisoning symptoms.
