 from what we found on the fda website in order for a product to be 'foodsafe' there couldnt be any crevices for food to get stuck. which i dont see how pul baggies would qualify, kwim?

Let me start out by saying I respect you and your opinion.  I respect the research you did and quite frankly it is a good thing you did do it.  As parents and grandparents it is our responsibility  to care for the little people we love so much.  That said,  this is my opionion.  It is in no way intended to start drama, so please don not take it as such.   

 I spoke to the engineer of another "pul" company and went over alot of that stuff in detail.  The specs are food safe.  We did go over "FDA"  things in detail as well.  There are tons of "holes" allover those guidelines on so many levels.  So basically, it depends on the individual and if they wish to  make items  to be used with food.    I use food safe pul to make items for dry snacks like cheerios, dehydrated fruit, and Other dry snacks.   I also make sure the bags I made are cleaned out well, and washed  very well.   But it really depends on the individuals.  If you wish to  consider the Crevices guideline,  than basically nothing  you can sew is going to be foodsafe.

Baggies are a lot more washable than many of the products I've seen in stores - sippy cups, water bottles, travel mugs, all manner of snack containers...the darned things refuse to come properly clean. And "crazy straws" - I'm not sure why those are supposed to be reusable when there's no proper way to clean them.

I don't really know anything about food container 'rules', but IMO baggies are a safer option than some of the store-bought alternatives. If it's a concern for anyone, just curve the corners instead of a 90* angle so crumbs won't get trapped in them.

Great idea on rounding the corners!

 Well personally I dont have a problem using them, but for a retailer, "I" can not sell a product as foodsafe if it doesnt follow all the guidelines leaving room for someone to sue me kwim? I agree that there is no way to sew a product and follow those quidelines, even rounding corners you are always sewing on at least 2 sides, Im sure the pul itself is safe, no question there. Im questioning the constructioni of the baggies themself, and whether or not they are foodsafe, kwim?  If someone can show me something saying it IS, please do b/c I want to carry them in my store, but cant risk the liablity without it.

How about a wrap? Then there are no crevices at all, you can lay it flat to wash and fold back up to hold things.

 Sounds like a good idea to me.

All good points.  And you can always sell them as reusable bags and let the buyer decide whether they wish to use them as food bags or toy bags ow whatnot.
