Craving some pizza? You may be better off making it yourself.

The FDA is now banning three types of perfluoroalkyl ethyl, chemicals that repel moisture and grease that are found in food packaging like pizza boxes.

Toxic to humans, perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have been linked to cancer, birth defects, and other health problems. Previous studies have also shown that PFASs "linger in people's bodies for years," saysThe New York Times. As a result, several food- and health-related groups have been petitioning against them.

While the science detailing the dangers of PFASs has been around for years, the FDA is only now saying that new information shows "the toxicity of substances structurally similar to these compounds demonstrate there is no longer a reasonable certainty of no harm from the food-contact use of these [food-contact substances]."

In addition to pizza boxes, perfluoroalkyl ethyl also makes appearances in microwave popcorn bags, waxy pastry bags, and countless other products, including tents and carpet cleaners. The ban, which will only apply to anything that makes contact with food, is effective as of January 4, 2019.

No word on how this will change pizza delivery.
