    FEICA publishes Summary Report of the FEICA risk assessment of cyclic esters in polyester adhesives

    Press release: FEICA has published a Summary Report of a FEICA risk assessment carried out on cyclic esters potentially present in polyester adhesives intended to be used in food contact materials. The FEICA document aims to provide the necessary information to help downstream users carry out their own risk assessments. The summary report published by FEICA intends to outline the main findings of the risk assessment and explain that human exposure to cyclic esters from polyester pre-polymers in food packaging adhesives is not relevant from a toxicological point of view.
