The Food Packaging Forum has developed a fact sheet that explains under which conditions chemicals are more prone to migrate from food packaging into food. A separate set of fact sheets also provide an introduction to five common material types used in food packaging along with their material properties that can affect their application, chemical safety, and recycling (FPF reported). One of these focuses specifically on plastic packaging.
