A US-based plastic manufacturer is under investigation after a US company used a tube metal used to make disposable plastic bags to make chemical products.
The Chemical Industry Association (CIA) said in a statement that it was investigating the company and its operations after its products were discovered in a plastic laundry tub.
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has been investigating whether the products were improperly labeled as “organic” and are in violation of the federal government’s National Organic Program.
The chemical industry group said that a consumer complaint was received in May 2017 and the investigation was ongoing.
The CIA said that the product, “tissue,” is an ingredient used in a variety of products, including household products.
“Tissue” is a synthetic polymer that is made from a mixture of carbon, magnesium, zinc, and a mineral called boron nitride.
“It is not a food additive and is not known to be hazardous to humans or the environment,” the statement said.
“Its use is common in food products.
It is commonly used in food packaging and packaging materials used in packaging for the grocery store.”
The CAA also noted that the “tissues” was not manufactured by a licensed manufacturing company.
“This company is a non-compliant with the organic requirements of the Organic Materials Review Board and its suppliers,” the CAA said.CAA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) in October 2017 ordered the company to recall products and to stop making them for consumers.
The CPSC said that while the company had not yet issued a recall, it was conducting an investigation into the safety of the products.CPSB rules require manufacturers to obtain approval from the CPSC before using certain ingredients in their products.
In a statement on Monday, the CPSB said that it had begun an investigation to determine whether the chemicals were being used in the manufacture of household products in the US.
“The CPSB is working with the manufacturer and the FDA to identify any potential safety concerns related to the use of the ingredients,” the agency said.
