China Consults on 11 New Varieties of Food-related Products

Food contact material containing rosin, ester with glycerol, which was successfully submitted for the application by REACH24H, should not be used to contact infant and young children food or breast milk.

On Aug. 20, China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment (CFSA) opened 11 new varieties of food-related products to public feedback, including five new FCM additive varieties, four FCM additives with expanded application scope, and two new resins. Any comment shall be sent back to CFSA prior to Sep. 10, 2021.
