The development of a two-dimensional probabilistic model to estimate the short-term dietary exposure of UK consumers to migrants from food packaging materials using bisphenol A diglycidyl ether, di-2-ethylhexyl adipate and styrene as case studies is described. The effects of sources of uncertainty such as measurement and sampling uncertainty of concentration data, food/packaging contact area and market shares of packaging types are addressed by the model. 25 refs.
