For a limited time only, PDA Technical Report No. 55: Detection and Mitigation of 2,4,6-Tribromoanisole and 2,4,6-Trichloroanisole Taints and Odors in the Pharmaceutical and Consumer Healthcare Industries is available for free download to PDA members until May 31st.

This latest report provides guidance on how to detect and mitigate TBA and TCA odors and taints. Well recognized in the food and beverage industries, the literature features knowledge from these industries regarding the origin of these odors and taints, analytical methods developed, and risk management strategies employed.

In 2009, this became an issue for the pharmaceutical and consumer healthcare industries with product recalls from four companies due to the risk of product exposure to the TBA taint from tribromophenol-treated wood pallets. Recalls from additional firms continued through 2011.
