a component of articles intended for use in contact with food, in 
accordance with the following prescribed conditions:
    (a) The additive is an addition polymer of ethylene oxide and water 
with a mean molecular weight of 200 to 9,500.
    (b) It contains no more than 0.2 percent total by weight of ethylene 
and diethylene glycols if its mean molecular weight is 350 or higher and 
no more than 0.5 percent total by weight of ethylene and diethylene 
glycols if its mean molecular weight is below 350, when tested by the 
analytical methods prescribed in Sec.  172.820(b) of this chapter.
