Maximum permitted quantity (QM)/(mg/kg)

Notes

Except for styrene homopolymer, PS plastic materials and products added with this substance shall not be in contact with greasy food or food whose ethanol content is over 50%. Instructions for use mentioned above shall be labeled according to GB 4806.1 National Food Safety Standard General Safety Requirements for Food Contact Materials and Articles.
