Hundreds of foods in U.S. contain 'ADA' plastics chemical:report

在美国,数以百计的食物中含有塑料化学物质"ADA"

(Reuters) - Nearly 500 foods found on grocerystore shelves in the United States, including many foods labeled as"healthy," contain a potentially hazardous industrial plasticschemical, according to a report issued Thursday by a health research andadvocacy group.

(路透社)--周二,根据一份由一个健康研究和倡导组织提出的报告,在美国将近500种正在杂货店出售的食物,包括许多标示着"健康"的食物,都含有一种潜在的有毒工业塑料化学物质。
Azodicarbonamide, also known as ADA, was found as an ingredient inbreads, bagels, tortillas, hamburger and hot dog buns, pizza, pastries, andother food products, according to a report by the Environmental Working Group,based in Washington.

总部设在华盛顿的环境工作小组的一份报告称,偶氮二甲酰胺,以名字ADA为人所熟知,在面包,百吉饼,玉米饼,汉堡,热狗面包,披萨,糕点以及其他食物中用作配料。
Some consumer groups have called for the removalof azodicarbonamide from use in foods. Fast food chain Subway said earlier thismonth that it was removing the chemical from its products, but stated that ADAis a safe and widely used ingredient for many foods.

一些消费者团体呼吁禁止在食物中使用偶氮二甲酰胺。赛百味表示这个月初他们已经没有在自己的产品中使用这种化学物质了,但同时赛百味也指出ADA是安全的并且广泛用于很多食物的制作中。
Azodicarbonamide is fully approved for use infood by the United States Food and Drug Administration and the Canadian FoodInspection Agency. But ADA is banned as an additive in Australia and someEuropean countries.
美国食品药品监督管理局(FDA)和加拿大食品检验中心批准偶氮二甲酰胺完全可以用于食物中。但是澳大利亚和一些欧洲国家禁止使用ADA。
As a food additive, azodicarbonamide is used asa flour bleaching agent and as an oxidizing agent in dough to improve itsperformance for bakers. It is also used in plastics to improve elasticity andcan be found in yoga mats and shoes.
作为面粉增白剂和氧化剂,面包师在面团中加入ADA可以提升面团性能。ADA同样可以加入塑料中提升塑料的弹性,比如瑜伽垫和鞋子里都有ADA。

The World Health Organization states thatepidemiological studies in humans and other reports have produced"abundant evidence that azodicarbonamide can induce asthma, otherrespiratory symptoms, and skin sensitization" to people working with thechemical.

世界卫生组织指出,对人类的流行病学研究以及其他报告已经提供了"大量的证据,表明偶氮二甲酰胺可以诱发哮喘,其它呼吸道症状和皮肤过敏"。
The Environmental Working Group saidmanufacturers should immediately end the use of ADA in food. U.S. SenatorCharles Schumer, a Democrat from New York, this month called on the FDA to banADA from foods.

环境工作组说厂商应该立即停止在食物中使用ADA。来自纽约的民主党议员舒默这个月呼吁FDA禁止食物中使用ADA。
The FDA states that azodicarbonamide can be usedsafely if the amount in flour does not exceed 2.05 grams per 100 pounds offlour or 45 parts per million.
FDA声明ADA的用量不超过2.05克每100磅或者45mg/kg时,是安全的。
