Canada finds no BPA risks in formula

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

A Canadian survey of bisphenol A in canned powdered infant formulas determines the chemical used in the internal coating of food containers "is not expected to pose a health risk to the general population, including newborns and infants." Health Canada analyzed 38 formula products -- including Similac and Isomil from Abbott Labs, Enfamil from Mead Johnson and Good Start from Nestle -- and found BPA concentration below the average method detection limit of 0.13 nanograms per gram in all samples, according to a July report. One ng/g is equivalent to 1 part per billion. The report says FDA agrees with the Canadian agency's health risk conclusions, though Congress wants FDA to reassess BPA risks as part of pending food safety legislation (1"The Tan Sheet" June 22, 2009)
