Presents the results of a series of tests of the mutagenicity of 24 food additives (four flavoring agents, four dietary supplements, four emulsifiers, two sequestrants, active carbon, two amino acids, o-phenylphenol (OPP), coal-tar dye (Red 40), polybutene, bleaching powder, and three others). The tests made use of Salmonella typhimurium TA97 and TA1O2. Cholecalciferol had a weak mutagenicity against TA97, and OPP against TA1O2. The other food additives had no mutagenicity against TA97 or TA102.
