Danish EPA surveys chemicals in cleaning products

The consequences of the Reach data analysis is starting to have benefits on the European citicens:

The Danish Environmental Protection Agency has published a survey of chemical substances in cleaning products for ovens, cookers and ceramic cooktops. The study determined the ingredients of 21 products and further analysed 14 to measure the level of organic solvents they contained. They also tested four products for the presence of PFOS compounds, but none were found.

The survey concluded that such consumer products do not present a critical health risk to consumers or the environment. However, it did find that some of the products contained organic solvents in concentrations that in certain circumstances may be harmful and therefore the use of such products should be minimised.
