Food Contact Substance:  Hexanedioic acid, polymer with 1,3-benzenedimethanamine (CAS Reg. No. 25718-70-1) meeting the analytical specifications in 21 CFR 177.1500(b), item 10.2, and used in conjunction with cobalt neodecanoate (CAS Reg. No. 27253-31-2).
Notifier:  Gruppo Mossi & Ghisolfi
Manufacturer:  Gruppo Mossi & Ghisolfi M&G Polymers USA, LLC
Intended Use:  The FCS will be used as a modifier of ethylene phthalate polymers regulated under 21 CFR 177.1630 and ethylene phthalate polymers that are the subject of an effective FCN, including those modified with 1,3-benzenedicarboxylic acid, 5-sulfo-, monolithium salt according to FCN 546.
Effective Date:  07/29/2008
Limitations/Specifications:  The FCS will be used at a level up to 5 weight percent of the finished food-contact article in conjunction with up to 0.015 weight percent cobalt neodecanoate (measured as cobalt) of the finished food-contact article. The modified polymers may be used in the manufacture of containers for contact with food types I, II, VI-A, VI-B, and VI-C (alcohol content up to 15 percent), except for carbonated soft drinks and water, under Conditions of Use C through G as described in Tables 1 and 2.
