Residues of this gas in plastics are very
small. The gas has low toxic potential.
Migration into food will be toxicologically
negligible.

Restriction: Residual content of ethylene
carbonate: 5 mg/kg hydrogel at a
maximum ratio of 10 g hydrogel/kg food.
Ethylene glycol: SML= 30 mg/kg food
Remark for Commission: No method
available for specific migration; only a QM
method for the monomer and ethylene
