  "abstract": "<p>The Food Contact Chemicals database (FCCdb) is&nbsp;a compilation of information on intentionally added food contact chemicals, extracted from publicly available sources such as legislation on food contact materials and&nbsp;industry inventories for different types of food contact materials. Where available, information from a few selected sources&nbsp;on hazardous properties and commercial use has been included as well. Further details on the information sources used are given in the READ ME worksheet of the excel file. The FCCdb intends to provide an overview of the diversity of food contact chemicals and their hazardous properties. Further details on the compilation and analysis of this dataseta can be found in the manuscript &quot;Overview of intentionally used food contact chemicals and their hazards,&quot; by Ksenia J. Groh, Birgit Geueke, Olwenn Martin, Maricel Maffini, and Jane Muncke, recently accepted and soon to be published by <em>Environmental International</em>. Upon the manuscript publication, a slightly updated database version will be uploaded as well.</p>",
