FDA responds to Science Board’s BPA review

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

The agency is formulating a response to its Science Board's review of FDA's draft assessment of bisphenol A's safety in food contact applications. Associate Commissioner for Science Norris Alderson initially replied to the board in a December 2008 letter, agreeing that FDA should focus on BPA applications that might impact infants, including formula packaging (1"The Tan Sheet" Jan. 5, 2009, In Brief). According to a Feb. 9 release, FDA and Health Canada officials held a forum Jan. 30 with manufacturers from both countries to discuss ongoing BPA reduction efforts. FDA says an international regulatory consensus holds that BPA exposure through food packages does not pose a risk to the general population, but the agency continues to review research on the potential low-dose effects of BPA
