As California moves a step nearer to outlawing the use of the chemical Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in food packaging, European regulators say they are not currently reassessing their own opinions on the chemical.
DuPont said yesterday it has developed new technologies that will
allow the company to eliminate
perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) from packaging by 2015, a move made
due to consumers' health concerns about the chemical.
