Consumers anticipate that the products they purchase will be free of harmful ingredients, especially if they come into touch with food or drink or intend for contact with mouth. Any objects or articles that come into contact with food may include chemicals, metals, or harmful substances that are leached into the food. Plasticware, glasses, pottery, cutlery, crockery, and food containers or packaging are all included. The same is true for business gifts or party favors that are not intended for food contact but may come into contact with the mouth, such as whistles, balloons, and so on.
