Finding of No Significant Impact

A food contact notification (FCN No. 644), submitted by Keller and Heckman LLC on behalf of JohnsonDiversey, Inc., to provide for the safe use of chlorine dioxide as an antimicrobial agent in water used in poultry processing and to wash fruits and vegetables that are not raw agricultural commodities in an amount not to exceed 5 ppm residual chlorine dioxide.

The Environmental Review Group has determined that allowing this notification to become effective will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment and therefore will not require the preparation of an environmental impact statement. This finding is based on information submitted by the notifier in a revised environmental assessment (in PDF, 1.6Mb) dated August 17, 2006.
