Studies of migration of potentially genotoxic compounds into water stored in pet bottles.


Coloured polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles for carbonated beverages were studied for potential migration of genotoxic compounds. A combined approach, using physicochemical methods and a bacterial short-term mutagenicity test (Ames test) was followed. Standard EEC and US FDA tests for total migration of non-volatile migrant compounds into distilled… (More)
