Notifier:  Sumitomo Chemical Company, Ltd.
 
Manufacturer:  Sumitomo Chemical Company, Ltd.
 
Intended Use:  As an antioxidant in propylene homopolymers and copolymers complying with 21 CFR 177.1520.
 
Effective Date:  09/18/2009
 
Limitations/Specifications:  The FCS may be used at a level not to exceed 0.2 weight percent of the finished polymer, as follows: a) In polypropylene complying with 21 CFR 177.1520(c) item 1.1, for use in contact with fatty foods (food types III, IV-A, V, VII-A and IX) under Conditions of Use A through C (note: 21 CFR 178.2010 permits use of the FCS in these polymers at a level not to exceed 0.2 percent in contact with fatty foods under Conditions of Use D through H, and at a level not to exceed 0.3 percent in contact with food types I, II,IV-B,VI, VII-B and VIII under Conditions of Use A through H). b) In olefin polymers complying with 21 CFR 1520(c) items 3.1 or 3.2 that contain not less than 85 weight percent of polymer units derived from propylene for use in contact with fatty foods (food types III, IV-A, V, VII-A and IX) under Conditions of Use A through H (note: 21 CFR 178.2010 permits use of the FCS in these polymers at a level not to exceed 0.3 percent in contact with food types I, II,IV-B,VI, VII-B and VIII under Conditions of Use A through H).
