Manufacturers of certain medical devices made of polyvinyl chloride may soon have to include a warning label or other information that the product contains the plasticiser, DEHP. The FDA disclosed that this was in prospect in a letter responding to a citizen petition filed by Health Care Without Harm (HCHW). The consumer group had requested that the FDA require that all devices containing the PVC softener carry a safety warning.
