“The agency concluded that the intended use of BVO in food is no longer considered safe after the results of studies conducted in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health … found the potential for adverse health effects in humans,” said James Jones (FDA’s deputy commissioner for human foods) in a statement, according to CNN.
