Publication Date

It focused on testing 39 table salt brands, including 28 sea salt brands, across the world. Among those, 36 of them contained traces of plastics, which is at least 92 percent of the study set. And worst of all were brands packaged in Asia, a region the researchers call a “hotspot of global plastic pollution.”
