  • E-mail
-

This is a list of submissions for which FDA issued a favorable opinion on the suitability of a specific process for producing post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic to be used in the manufacturing of food-contact articles. The list includes the date of our no objection letter (NOL), the company that made the request, the subject plastic, whether the recycling process is physical or chemical, and limitations on the conditions of use for the recycled plastic.

Additional information on the safety of recycled plastics in Food Packaging is found at Recycled Plastics in Food Packaging.

If a listed process is sublicensed to be used by another manufacturer, there is no need for the sublicensing company to obtain a new favorable opinion letter issued to their name, as long as the recycling process and intended use conditions of recycled plastic are exactly the same as described in the original favorable letter listed on this website. The original favorable opinion letter is applicable to the recycling process that FDA reviewed, regardless of which manufacturer uses it.
