The department is specifically concerned about the possibility that FCBs in paper packaging materials might migrate into foods and represent a health hazard, according to Dr. A. B. Morrison, assistant deputy min- ister of health. It is not yet known how haz- ardous PCBs. are to humau health. But the fact that PCBs are very similar to plas- ics are as persistent and as wide-spread throughout the world, as well as being chemi- cally relate'! to DDT-like pesti- c i d c s a s stimulated much concern and study in many countries, Canada and the U.S. included. "If our scientists find that the packaging materials in the contain significant levels of PCBs, then we intend to look at tho foods as well, to test how cod hvcr oil-according to Dr. Morrison. don't have the evidence yet to dcternu'ne what Uie levels should be for cither foods or for food packaging he said. Specific guidelines for PCBs will likely be drawn up. A recent study of human milk and fat samples revealed no de- tectable amounts of PCBs, he added. One health department, offi- cial said that results of some long-term animal studies done by the major PCB manufac- turer in the U.S. and currently being studied by government toxicolo- jists, to "see it a permissible daily intake for humans can be established. The health d e p a r t in e n started animal studies of its own last year. One I i n ti i n g from rabbit studies is that PCBs can cross the placenta! harder. PCBs, the studies show, can also be loxic to the embryo at "relatively high means about 100 ppm, Dr. Mor- rison said. TCBs are industrial chemicals used widely as electrical insula- tors, heat-exchange fluids, plas- licizers, and hydraulic fluids. As a result of recent con- cerns, Monsanto has agreed to limit use of PCBs it makes to closed systems and to trans- formers and electrical con- densers, Dr. Morrison said. A government review of food processing plants in Canada in- dicated there is "almost use" of PCBs. In paper packaging materials, PCB contamination is often a result of recycling of papers.
