Packaging solvents and chemicals that migrate to products

The cover story for the August 31, 2009, issue of Chemical & Engineering News was entitled, “Chemicals Leach From Packaging: Food and drugs just can’t leave their wrappings behind.”  URL for article is: http://pubs.acs.org/cen/coverstory/87/8735cover.html .  The same agency that regulates packaging materials for foods and drugs, now is regulating tobacco products.  For many years, the major tobacco companies have had strict controls on materials used in their packaging and levels of residual solvents they will permit, companies with fewer resources may not have the skilled personnel and equipment to ensure that they are not having problems with packaging, not only in terms of regulatory compliance, but more importantly in terms of making sure packaging does not compromise the hedonic attributes of their products.  Please contact me if you need addiitonal information.
