This follows the World Health Organisation noticing that acrylamide was raising concerns among scientists. Realising that big plastics manufacturers were producing nearly all of this stuff, WHO decided to target consumers instead to avoid upsetting their friends in big business. Fellow bureaucrats in Brussels have now got the message - and presumably some big business cash - and will soon be instructing Whitehall food-fascists to crack down on yet another lot of consumables.
All this despite WHO's own experts admitting that there was bugger-all evidence suggesting food to be the problem, as the above article indicates. No doubt they've been sacked by now for going against the official consensus, like climatologists whose research funding dries up when they express doubts about global warming.
