Updated FEICA guidance for evaluating the food contact status of adhesives containing mineral oil hydrocarbons
FEICA recently updated its guidance for evaluating the food contact status of adhesives containing mineral oil hydrocarbons (MOHs).
This guidance, provided by the FEICA Paper & Packaging Working Group, aims at supporting adhesive producers and adhesive users in ensuring that the adhesive is safe in the intended application. It provides clarifications regarding assessing the risk of mineral oil hydrocarbon migration from adhesives and, where testing is needed, performing the testing and evaluating the results. A decision tree is also included to help users evaluate adhesives for their intended application.
