Editorial note

 

If Listeria phage P100 has an ongoing technological function it ceases to be a processing aid as defined in subclause 1(1), and operates instead as a food additive.  For example, Listeria phage P100 may have an ongoing technological function when introduced to liquids. Standard 1.3.1 does not permit the use of Listeria phage P100 as a food additive.
