Potential for a wide debate. Would it be feasible to add a bitter tasting substance such as 'Bitrex' to lubricants supplied to the food industry (where incidental food contact might arise).

Neil,

If there is the potential for the oil to enter food the problem should be designed out of the process. If there is even a slight chance of contamination then food grade lubricants should be used.

Correctamundo Richard.

About Bitrex

I'm with Yorkshire on this one. If there's a risk of oil contamination then food grade lubricants should be used and still then tight control of it's use and abuse.
