BHT (Preservative) not in food, but packaging

Eating a whole-grain triscuit just now, and reading the label like I read all labels. I learned something new. That BHT is applied NOT to the food product, but to the packaging containing the product.

I have worked in a food processing plant where I had lab techs report to me and they would test for BHT and other preservatives in our tanker-car (train) deliveries of oil. We did not use preservatives and if the oil shipped to us had any, we'd send it back and charge them for our testing time.

But I have never heard of if used in product packaging before.

They have used BHT in packaging materials for grain based products like crackers, cereal since I was a kid, That was 40 years ago. So I am surprised you are in food processing and had not heard of this. The practice may go even farther back in time.

Again, my employer did not use preservatives. And it was a brief employment. Many years ago, too.
