What are primary aromatic amines?

“Primary aromatic amines are substances harmful to health that should not be found in food,” we read in the announcement of the Chief Sanitary Inspector. These compounds are used in the production of certain plastics, dyes, adhesives and food packaging. Aromatic amines have been classified as potentially carcinogenic, which means that they may contribute to the development of cancer.. They are considered dangerous when, under the influence of certain chemical reactions, they enter food in quantities exceeding permissible limits.
