China Consults on 10 New Varieties of Food-related Products

Food-related products under the consultation include three new additive varieties used in food contact materials and articles (usually mentioned as FCM), two FCM additives with expanded application scope, and five new resins.

On Oct. 27, China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment (CFSA) opened 10 new varieties of food-related products for public feedback, including three new additive varieties used in food contact materials (FCM) and articles, two FCM additives with expanded application scope, and five new resins. Any comment can be sent back to biaozhun@cfsa.net.cn prior to Nov. 18, 2021.
