Rubbermaid is giving consumers a new food storage solution that is designed to help reduce unwanted microbes.
The EasyFindsLids Food Storage Containers with SilverShield for Antimicrobial Product Protection offers built-in antimicrobial properties to protect the containers and lid from a build-up of microbes.
The containers and lids contain small amounts of silver ions to help prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria on the product surface that is said by the company to last the lifetime of the product. The SilverShield technology meets Food and Drug Administration guidelines for food contact surfaces.
“At a time when consumers are cooking more at home, we are pleased to offer a new storage solution that not only helps reduce clutter but also keeps food storage containers free of odors,” said Kris Malkoski, CEO, Food Business Unit at Newell Brands, the parent company of Rubbermaid. “With the introduction of SilverShield antimicrobial technology, our hope is to provide consumers with peace-of-mind that their meals and their containers can stay protected and fresh longer.”
The new antimicrobial containers feature the same modular, space-efficient design as the Rubbermaid EasyFindLids collection, which are designed for easy organization and reducing clutter. Lids snap together and to container bases, making it easy to find the right lid for the right container. Additionally, the bases nest neatly together when storing.
Rubbermaid EasyFindLids SilverShield for Antimicrobial Product Protection containers are made in the United States and are BPA-free, microwave-safe on reheat settings, freezer-safe and dishwasher-safe on the top rack.
The new food storage containers are available in a variety of sizes and shapes for different needs, in sets ranging from 24 pieces to 42 pieces. The products can be purchased at online retailers nationwide including Target, Walmart and Amazon, starting at $12.
