The chemical that is highest in the level of toxicity since it poses a considerably grave risk to health has been discovered on a few sticky labels that are placed on the packets of fresh meat, vegetables, tubs of sauce and various other food items.
Strict EU safety policy rule that which particular kind of materials can come into straight contact with food, however there are no regulations regarding the chemicals in adhesives that are used to glue stickers to the packets.
A reading published today by the Royal Society of Chemistry illustrates that four toxic composites in widely-used glues on sticky stickers can ooze all the way through paper and plastic packing and pollute the food inside.
One such bonding agent is in the highly poisonous class along with other venomous chemicals for example mercury, asbestos and hydrochloric acid. Extremely toxic chemicals can cause organ breakdown and even casualty in high dosages.
The researchers, from the University of Zaragoza, Spain, examined four unlike acrylic adhesives normally used on food labels.
They evaluated thoroughly 11 compounds that are found in the adhesives, ten of which had small toxicity whilst the rest of the compound, 2, 4, 7, 9-tetramethyldec-5-yne-4, 7-diol – belonged to the uppermost risk class.
