There has been recent media interest regarding toxic elements found in baby food products sold within the US. This webinar will discuss the background of this issue, including how toxic elements enter baby food, the associated health risks, and the techniques used to characterize them. It will also discuss how laboratories can analyze these sample types for the low level of elemental contaminants, and what reference materials are available to analysts to help with method validation.
The webinar will be facilitated by Dr. Eve Kroukamp (PerkinElmer, Inc.) and Dr. Kevin Kubachka (US FDA), who will introduce the topics and provide background information. Dr. Patrick Gray (US FDA) will discuss the FDA’s Closer to Zero plan and related methodology to measure low levels of elemental contaminants within baby food. Dr. Laura Wood (NIST) and Dr. Zoltan Mester (CNRC) will then discuss the reference materials that their respective metrological institutions provide to aid method development and validation.
Webinar Date and Time: December 9, 2021 11:00 am - 12:00 pm Eastern US Standard Time (UTC/GMT -5 hours)
