Are there any special instructions for using Ziploc® Brand Containers in the microwave or freezer?
Before using any Ziploc® Brand Container for the first time, wash it thoroughly.
Defrost & Reheat: Partially open the container by pulling up on the lid tab. This will allow steam to vent during the microwaving process. The container may be hot during microwaving, so handle carefully. Do not use Ziploc® Brand Containers in conventional ovens, under browning elements, or over stovetops.
To freeze: Fill the container to within 1/4" to 1/2" from the top to allow for freezer expansion, then snap on the lid to seal. Too much air space in the container can cause ice crystals to form. If there is going to be a significant amount of empty space in the container, wrap solid food items with Saran™ Brand Plastic Wrap, then place them in the container. Store securely. The container becomes slightly brittle at 30°F - 40°F (or below) and may crack if dropped.
How long can I expect a Ziploc® Brand Container to last?
Ziploc® Brand Containers are disposable and are not intended to last as long as more expensive containers. A container's life expectancy can be affected by how often it's used and how it's used. If the lid should no longer seal adequately, or if the container cracks, simply replace the container with a Ziploc® Brand Container.
Where can I buy Ziploc® Brand Containers?
Ziploc® Brand Containers are sold in the U.S. in grocery, drug, and discount stores. If you live in the U.S., you can also place an order through the SC Johnson Direct Mail Order service. Credit card orders call 1-800-848-2588. Or fax orders to: 1-920-751-5850.
Are Ziploc® Brand Containers 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.
The containers' packaging reads "Microwave safe;" are all Ziploc® Brand Containers safe?
Yes. Ziploc® Brand Containers have always been microwave safe for defrosting and reheating in the microwave. This includes both Ziploc® Brand Containers and Ziploc® Brand Twist ‘n Loc® Containers.
Take homemade soup to work for lunch in a Ziploc® Brand Twist 'n Loc® Container.
