These cutlery are substandard and many people are buying;

When many parents choose children's tableware, they will choose beautiful, light and non-breakable melamine tableware. So, is the melamine tableware on the market safe? Recently, the Shanghai Municipal Supervision Bureau conducted a supervision and spot check on melamine tableware produced and sold in Shanghai. Among the 76 batches of products checked, 9 batches of products were unqualified, and the unqualified rate was 11.8%. Among them, 5 batches of products were found to have unqualified migration of melamine, posing a danger to human health. Melamine tableware was on the list, and then this topic became a hot topic on Weibo.

The migration of melamine in 5 batches of products exceeded the standard

Melamine, commonly known as melamine and protein essence, is a class of triazine nitrogen-containing heterocyclic organic compounds and is the main raw material for the manufacture of melamine-formaldehyde resin. At present, the melamine resin prepared by the condensation polymerization of melamine and formaldehyde is applied in the plastics industry. The results of the sampling inspection showed that among the 9 batches of unqualified melamine tableware, 5 batches involved melamine migration (4% acetic acid) and were unqualified, accounting for 55%.

Among them, the detection value of melamine migration (4% acetic acid) of one batch of unqualified products was 5.0mg/Kg, which was more than twice the standard. According to GB4806.6-2016 "National Food Safety Standard Plastic Resins for Food Contact", the specific migration limit of melamine is 2.5mg/kg, and when it is used to produce contact materials or products that contact infant food, the specific migration limit of melamine The limit is 1.0mg/kg.

The reporter noticed that these 5 batches of unqualified products included 1 batch of dealers called "KaKao Friends" RYAN one-eared apple bowls.

In addition, unqualified products include 1 batch of tableware labeled "tiny footprint", 2 batches of tableware labeled "ikello" and "ubee" by dealers, and 1 batch labeled "Fangte". Anime" tableware.

It is reported that melamine tableware with unqualified melamine migration (4% acetic acid) may migrate into food during use, posing a risk of harming human health. Although melamine is not included in the "Inventory of Hazardous Chemicals", it is potentially harmful to animals, and long-term exposure or ingestion can cause diseases. As early as 2017, the World Health Organization listed melamine as a Class 2B carcinogen.

3 batches of melamine tableware potassium permanganate consumption failed

Potassium permanganate consumption refers to the total amount of substances that can be oxidized by potassium permanganate when food contact materials migrate into water under certain time and temperature conditions. sum of matter.

The results of the sampling inspection showed that 3 batches of melamine tableware had unqualified consumption of potassium permanganate, and 1 batch of melamine tableware suffered serious discoloration during the soaking test, from "red bowl" to "white bowl". Specifically, it includes: a batch of melamine bowls, a batch of long-handled soup spoons, and a batch of produced soup spoons.

It is reported that the migration of inks, pigments, plasticizers, adhesives and other additives in food contact materials can lead to excessive consumption of potassium permanganate. If the consumption of potassium permanganate is unqualified, these harmful substances will easily move out into the food and cause harm to human health.

At the same time, it stated that it will continue to strengthen product quality control, and implement stricter all-round supervision of the entire industry chain from the source of production to the sales terminal, so as to prevent similar situations from happening again and protect the health and safety of consumers.
