Chronic toxicity studies on white oils

Report no. 1/04: This report summarises the results of experimental studies undertaken to investigate the chronic toxicity and carcinogenic potential of two highly refined mineral white oils of medium and high viscosity.

The studies were commissioned to support regulatory submissions on the safe use of mineral hydrocarbons in direct food and food contact applications. Results are presented and discussed and a proposal is made for a No Observed Adverse Effect Level.
