“Everything in excess! Take big bites to enjoy the flavor of life!” Moderation is for monks. ” >Lazarus Long.

I’ve had birds for a long time, and up until Thursday night, when Jubilee passed away from the fumes, I’ve always used Teflon and T-Fal without any issues. Good luck. It’s a shame, so I hope you don’t lose any of your birds.

The irony of it all is that, prior to that, all I had were enameled lined pans. I may look for a different frying pan, but I still have the enamel sauce pots. All my poor heart can take is losing even one bird this year.

Teflon poisoning mostly affects pet birds, and according to a 1990 AAPCC report on small animal poisoning, 5 out of 425 cases resulted in death. The issue occurs when Teflon or Silverstone-coated pots and pans are left on a hot stove until they are heated to As a result, harmful particles are released into the atmosphere, seriously harming birds’ lungs when they breathe them in. Birds cannot cough, exhale, or otherwise remove the toxic particles from their bodies. and are therefore more susceptible to this type of poisoning. Pet birds should probably be kept away from the kitchen, even though this is difficult to prevent because accidents happen! (especially if you tend to be an absent-minded cook!)”

The problem comes from burning anything. You will kill your birds if you are the type of cook who sets off the smoke alarm and keeps them too close to the kitchen. When PTFE gas is extremely heated, it does not harm birds’ lungs like regular smoke does. Research has been done on this, and I’m sure it can be found online. The issue is that, as with many things on the internet, a story begins online and soon after, people just keep repeating it as fact. Smoke from superheated PTFE gas is extremely toxic, but it has no effect on animals or birds. Many people fabricate things to attract attention as though they are “new” discoveries. Many household cleansers are highly toxic to birds and can cause lung damage. You have to use extreme caution when using anything near them. As I have stated numerous times, you must exercise extreme caution when obtaining information from the internet.

FAQ

What non-stick pans are safe for birds?

But I recently discovered Caraway’s non-stick, non-toxic cookware. The pots and pans were being championed by health-conscious moms for not only being PTFE-free, but also being free of PFOA, PFA, lead, cadmium, nickel, and other commonly-used toxic metals. And the cookware isn’t made with any form of hard anodization.
