    I guess I’m lucky here. My wife’s bakery goes through around 8 food grade buckets a week. I can get as many as I need. Unfortunately, I only get them when they’re empty, rather than full of icing. I keep telling her every home needs 5-10 gallons of chocolate icing for an SHTF emergency situation.

    I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.

    I did however begin scanning the Home Depot site and found this ....will be investigating further.

    Thanks for bringing it to my attention...and also need to now investigate the proper food safe lid as well.

    Menards is based in Wisconsin - and limits their stores to a dozen states in the Upper Midwest ....

    in regard to Home Depot and food grade - watch for any product switching in the stores - two white buckets in their internet inventory - both being described as "food safe" ... the retail food grade should be OEM stenciled with the FDA qualifications ....

    Ahh...ok...I think I have it here now..


    Some of these buckets say only Food Safe and others seem to say FDA approved Food Safe.

    Do I have this correct Illinois Warrior?? Is this the crux of that to which you are attempting to make clear here now??

    If so I shall have to remember that as this seems to be in the "Details " here.


    Also food grade buckets seem to be about 10 mils thicker. It was so too with the bakery Icing buckets as well as the pickle buckets years ago...noticeably thicker.


    Thanks,

    no - not all the bucket manufacturers screen in the FDA info like they should when selling to retailers - they just take stock from their regular food grade inventory and ship - especially when the purchase $$$$ isn't worth the run ....

    with Home Depot having those two SKUs for white buckets - be willing to bet you'll find some substituting going on in the stores .....

    what Lowes was doing was just slapping a "BPA Free" label on their buckets and claiming food grade - that'll get you in trouble with the FEDs ....
