The Bishop of St Albans received the following written answer on 19th July 2022:
The Lord Bishop of St Albans asked Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the prevalence of microplastics in food production.
Lord Kamall: The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is monitoring and assessing emerging information concerning microplastics in food. Based on current information, the FSA considers it is unlikely that the presence of these particles in food or drink would cause harm to consumers. However, this will be kept under review as new evidence becomes available.
