More than 170 toxic chemicals banned from European consumer products such as computers and textiles are still allowed for use in food packaging, according to a study conducted by researchers from the Food Packaging Forum and published in the journal Food Additives & Contaminants.
“Chemicals with highly toxic properties may legally be used in the production of food contact materials, but not in other consumer products such as computers, textiles and paints even though exposure through food contact materials may be far more relevant,” researcher Jane Muncke, PhD, said. “From a consumer perspective, it is certainly undesirable and also unexpected to find chemicals of concern being intentionally used in food contact materials.”
