I came across a recipe called white trash and involves a trash bag...would you use a trash bag as

a shaker....the recipe is 2 types of chex cereal,peanuts,chocolate chips and powder sugar and some other things but you add it all to a white trash bag and shake to mix and it says on the recipe it makes for a great gift....

isn't there toxins in a trash bag that should not be used for shaking food then eaten that food

  • Good lord, talk about white trashy! No, garbage bags are not made with food grade plastic. Guess what? Neither are shopping bags or bread bags...that's why bread comes wrapped in a neat cellophane package slipped inside it's colorful name brand sleeve. Generally. Sorry, tangent. To answer your question: No. I would not use a trash bag to prepare my food.

  • Yep, I was thinking the same thing. I feel the term white trash is racist too. It's no better than any racial slur out there. But now I want a I'd probably use a brown paper bag too.
