Download Occurence and risk characterisation of migration of packaging chemicals in New Zealand foods
An analytical survey has been undertaken to evaluate dietary exposure to compounds that may migrate from packaging materials into foods. Seventy four samples of various packaged and takeaway foods were analysed for phthalates and printing inks/photoinitiators. The results of the study indicate that the New Zealand public health risk of migration of phthalates and printing inks/photoinitiators from packaging into foods is negligible.
