Polyester Fabric Sandwich Bags

QUESTION:

I was just reading on a cloth diapering board that some moms are making "sandwich bags" out of the fabric we use for diapers. It is a polyester knit with a polyurethane laminate applied to one side. Is this SAFE?! I was just reading on your site about plastics and some being better than others, have you read anything about polyurethane and it's safety? I use it for diapers, but having it around the food that my children eat makes me a little nervous.

DEBRA'S ANSWER:

My understanding is that plastics are made for different purposes. Food grade plastics are made specifically for food. Personally, I wouldn't use a plastic not designed for food with food.
