FSA proposes limit for ethylene oxide in food additives


Feb 12, 2024

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is inviting public comments on a proposal that limits ethylene oxide in food additives to 0.1 mg/kg.

Ethylene oxide is a residue/contaminant which can be harmful and is not approved for use in food. The limit proposed by FSA is the same limit adopted in the European Union in September 2022 following incidents related to the presence of ethylene oxide and its breakdown product 2-chloro-ethanol in a wide range of food products.
