Agency wants control on formaldehyde
The Jakarta Post
JAKARTA: The government should put an additive in formaldehyde to prevent food producers from using it in their products, a consumer advocate says.
National Consumer Protection Agency (BPKN) deputy chair Fransiscus Welirang said the additive, known as Bitrex, would add a bitter flavor that would make it apparent formaldehyde had been used as a preservative in food.
