What does FDA compliant mean?
FDA compliant is a shorthand way of talking about materials that are safe for direct food contact. These materials are also called food contact substances (FCS).
An FCS is any material that comes into contact with or is used for manufacturing, packing, packaging, transporting or holding food. Both the plastics and the pigments used in making colored plastic fittings and cooking utensils are examples of food-contact substances.
FDA stands for the US Food and Drug Administration, a federal agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
