FDA Amends Food Additive Regs

Published on 2002-03-27. Author : SpecialChem

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the food additive regulations to provide for the safe use of 1,2-dibromo-2,4-dicyanobutane (DBDCB) and a mixture of 5-chloro-2-methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (CMI) and 2-methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (MI), optionally containing magnesium nitrate, as antimicrobial agents in emulsion-based silicone coating formulations.

This action responds to a petition filed by Dow Corning Corp.

This regulation is effective February 11, 2000. Submit written objections and requests for a hearing by March 13, 2000.
