Default Film Canister Salt & Pepper Shakers

I picked up for $1.00 (for the pair) today at Army & Navy, salt & pepper shaker toppers to put on your film canisters. Any fine spice/seasoning would work. I am so thrilled, but knew I would get smart *ss comments from the gear whores out there if I posted under Gear.

Hey just a buck to add some spice to your life! Ha

I have heard that film canisters which used to hold film could possibly retain some sort of chemical that is potentially toxic to humans and that they shouldn't be used to store consumeables. Can anyone varify this???? Maybe hold out on the S+P 'till this matter is cleared up.

Gee I used them for a couple of years until I lost them. No harm done. Wait a minute, that's about the time I started going bald <img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

While I have no personal knowledge of this, I understand that for many years film canisters were commonly used to store marijuana.

If there were any validity to the toxic chemical theory, then pot-heads would surely have suffered ill effects by now. You know: memory loss, trouble articulating clearly, irrational laughter etc.

I think the jury is in! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I am by no means an expert in the area, but assuming that you wash out the canister after using it for film, any residue in there would leech out so slowly that you would have to be using them to eat your meals out of every day to see an effect. But then you would have other issues to deal with, like your sanity after having to refill the canister 40 times for one serving. I highly doubt ................... what was I talking about again?

Thanks for all the info. No need to carry that other stuff - 2 fatties were found in a make-up case at Joffre last weekend. Unless CT left it there on purpose. Leave the camera and the fattie?
