United States: Risk Mitigation Strategies For Manufacturers Of Nanomaterials

Abstract:
Despite regulatory uncertainties and the lack of safety data, companies are rushing nanomaterials to market in a wide variety of FDA-regulated product categories. A public inventory of products that claim to contain nanomaterials includes products such as foods (including dietary supplements), food packaging and other food contact products, cosmetics, devices and drugs.1 Food and food contact products listed in the inventory include oils, tea, nutritional and sports supplements, food storage containers, plastic wrap and kitchenware. Some of these products are claimed to help control weight, slow aging, reduce viral loads or destroy bacteria. The inventory includes a number of cosmetic products (77) and sunscreen products (27), as well as products classified as "personal care" products that include toothpaste, wound dressings, pregnancy tests, hearing aids, antiseptic sprays for cuts and scrapes, and pain relief products.
