Can Ziploc® Brand Bags be used in the microwave?
Ziploc® Brand Freezer and Storage Bags may be used for microwave reheating and defrosting. When defrosting or reheating, always open the zipper one inch to vent. Be careful when reheating foods that are high in fat or sugar content (bacon, pastries), because these foods reheat very quickly and may exceed the softening point of the bags.
Ziploc® Brand Sandwich Bags and Snack Bags should not be used in the microwave because they are too thin.
Ziploc® Zip’n Steam® Bags are specially designed for microwave steam cooking. They are made of two layers of plastic laminated together that are formulated to stand up to the high temperatures of cooking in the microwave, so they will not get soft and flimsy. When pressure builds up in the bags, specially designed vents allow it to escape. Always allow the bag to stand for one minute before handling. When opening, hold the top of the bag, as the blue area above the zipper remains fairly cool to the touch, and open the bag away from your body to allow the hot steam to escape.
Can I boil in Ziploc® Brand Bags?
No. Ziploc® Brand Bags are not designed to withstand the extreme heat of boiling.
Are Ziploc® Brand Bags kosher?
I recently heard media reports that plastic products contain a chemical that can encourage prostate cancer. Do SC Johnson's plastic products contain BPA (bisphenol A)?
A recent study conducted and published by the University of Cincinnati found that the estrogen-like chemical BPA (bisphenol A) has been shown to encourage the growth of a specific category of prostate cancer cells. BPA is commonly used in the manufacture of certain plastic products, such as food-can coatings, milk-container liners, food containers, and water-supply pipes. As a result, media have been reporting on this study and the fact that this chemical is commonly found in plastic food storage containers.
SC Johnson does not use BPA in its plastic products, Ziploc® Brand Bags and Containers.
SC Johnson is a leader in providing high-quality products. All of its products are extensively evaluated for toxicity and safety and comply with—and often even exceed—applicable quality and safety regulations.

I have read an email that warned consumers about the alleged dangers of using Ziploc® Brand products in the microwave. Is this information true?
In 2002, we became aware of an email that was being widely circulated, which warned consumers about the alleged dangers of using plastics in the microwave. This email claimed that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body, thereby increasing the risk of producing cancerous cells. We researched these claims and it is clear that the information is misleading, and unnecessarily alarms consumers.
Ziploc® Brand products are 100% dioxin free. You also should be aware that dioxins can be formed only when chlorine is combined with extremely high temperatures, such as 1,500°F, which even the most powerful consumer microwave ovens are unable to produce.
Our Ziploc® Brand products can be used with confidence when label directions are followed. All Ziploc® Brand Containers and microwaveable Ziploc® Brand Bags meet the safety requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for temperatures associated with defrosting and reheating food in microwave ovens, as well as room, refrigerator, and freezer temperatures.
Like all Ziploc® Brand products, Zip’n Steam® Bags are dioxin free. Additionally, they are specially designed for microwave use and meet the safety requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for temperatures associated with cooking food in the microwave when label directions are followed.
Please help us alleviate consumers' concerns and share these facts with those who forwarded this misleading e-mail to you, and to whom you may have sent it. Thank you for giving us a chance to set the record straight.
With Ziploc® Sandwich Bags, you can save money & eat healthier by dividing a super-size bag of snacks into perfectly sized portions. Snacks stay fresh & ready to satisfy your craving.
When taking a sandwich for lunch, I put my pickles and tomato slices in a snack size Ziploc. The bread and meat go in a sandwich bag. I add the veggies right before I eat, thus no soggy sandwich.
Get ready for busy nights by making tasty sandwiches earlier in the day. Put together your favorite cooked meats, veggies, cheeses and breads & store individually in Ziploc® Sandwich Bags.
