Testers from across the world have come together to test for the presence of toxic chemicals in edible oil.
The test results are being published by the Food and Drug Administration and show a high level of contamination in a range of food products.
The tests have been conducted by a team from the University of Texas Health Science Center and the University at Buffalo, New York, as well as Cornell University.
The results show that nearly three-quarters of all the food samples tested showed traces of ethyl alcohol, a byproduct of the production of some plastics, such as polyethylene.
Other products, such a flour made from the flours of cereal, have levels of ethinyl alcohol that are higher than the amount that could be safely ingested by a person.
The Food and Drugs Administration said that although the levels of toxic substances detected were too high for consumers to eat, they should be taken into consideration.
The agency said it is working with manufacturers to increase their exposure limits.
“There is no way to reduce your exposure to toxic substances, but it is important to remember that the best way to avoid any potential exposure to these substances is to wash your hands thoroughly before handling any foods,” the FDA said in a statement.
“Avoiding food contact in a restaurant is important, as these products are the major sources of foodborne illness in the United States.”
Washing your hands with soap and water after handling any food is the best approach.
“The FDA has previously issued warnings for the use of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic bottles.
Polyvinylchloride (PVAC), also known as PVC, is a common plastic that has been used for some time to make food containers.
Its popularity has led to fears of plastic contamination in some foods.
The agency said that PVC bottles could also be found in other foods, including some of the popular cereals.
In a statement, the University Buffalo researchers said that the levels were too low to be safe for humans.”
Although the use and concentration of the toxic substances in these samples are much lower than levels that could potentially be harmful to consumers, the level of toxicant contamination is still high enough that a significant risk exists that consuming this food could be dangerous,” the researchers said.”
The testing also shows that the contamination is spread by a very small number of people, with a negligible risk of food poisoning.
“The researchers said the samples were collected from the same food preparation area that tested positive for PCBs, which are also used in some other products, including Styrofoam cups and packaging.”
This is the first time the extent of contamination of edible products from a consumer is being reported and the results are consistent with those in other studies.
The data suggest that consumers should be cautious about consuming these products,” the study said.
The research team said the results were consistent with other studies, which have shown that PCBs are the main source of food contamination in the U.S.
