No. 64-19-7), 1-hydroxyethylidine-1,1-diphosphonic acid (HEDP) (CAS Reg. No. 2809-21-4), water, and optionally, sulfuric acid (CAS Reg. No. 7664-93-9).

Limitations/Specifications*: In whole or cut meat (primarily as a spray), the components of the FCS mixture will not exceed 400 ppm peroxyacetic acid, 280 ppm hydrogen peroxide, and 20 ppm HEDP. In processed and preformed meat and poultry, the components of the FCS mixture will not exceed 230 ppm peroxyacetic acid, 280 ppm hydrogen peroxide, and 14 ppm HEDP. In whole or cut poultry, the components of the FCS mixture will not exceed 2000 ppm peroxyacetic acid and 136 ppm HEDP. In fish and seafood, the components of the FCS mixture will not exceed 230 ppm peroxyacetic acid, 280 ppm hydrogen peroxide, and 14 ppm HEDP. In fruits and vegetables, the components of the FCS mixture will not exceed 80 ppm peroxyacetic acid, 120 ppm hydrogen peroxide, and 10 ppm HEDP.
