Plastic Pallets







The FDA Pallet

  • Weighs 11.65 - 14.5 lbs.
  • Nestable, 70 pallets in just one stack.

Plastic pallets advantages

  1. Insects cannot penetrate plastic.
  2. Plastic pallets can be easily sanitized by simply washing them before reuse.

Why NOT to use a wood pallet

  1. Because wood is so porous, it readily absorbs fluids and bacteria. This creates serious food sanitation risks - especially where Listeria, E. coli and salmonella are a concern.
  2. FDA has explicitly said wooden pallets cannot be used in conjunction with certain food processing procedures.
  3. Composite wood block pallets contain formaldehyde - a known carcinogen - that may come into contact with food when it is stored and shipped on wooden pallets.
  4. Wood pallets are covered with wood dust - a known carcinogen.
  5. Wooden pallets are susceptible to insect infestation; they require heat treatment or fumigation with Methyl Bromide - a highly toxic chemical - before shipping cross-border.
