This information profile on the food processing industry (SIC-20) is part of a group of 46 such profiles that provide information about chemicals of industrial processes considered to be potential occupational hazards. Each profile contains summary data on known and suspected health effects, the extent of worker exposure and the industrial importance of either a single chemical, class of chemicals, or a particular industrial process. The report was developed for use by occupational safety and health professionals in industry, and labor and other areas, to provide them with a synopsis of information in their workplaces.
