Grocery bags are now scented?

empower3inme | Feb 24, 201702:57 PM     4

In the last couple of months the stores, (ShopnSave & Walmart), where I buy groceries have started to use grocery bags that have a perfumed smell to them and the groceries, especially, breads and fruits quickly take on the odor.
Anyone have an answer to what this is that is being added to the grocery bags? It must be chemical based and is in NO way good for any of us but is especially bad for those with Environmental/Chemical Sensitivities.
Thank you!
