Feinstein to offer limited BPA amendment

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Sen. Dianne Feinstein will offer an amendment to food safety legislation banning bisphenol A in products intended for children, she announced Aug. 14. It would ban the use of the compound in packaging for infant formula and baby food within six months of the bill's enactment and require FDA to issue a safety assessment by Dec. 31. "The Food Safety Bill was the logical place for this legislation, and I have been working hard to reach a compromise, but unfortunately BPA language is not included," she said. It was previously reported that the California Democrat would offer a broader amendment banning the chemical from all food containers, a move that could imperil industry support for the food safety overhaul. The legislation, which has bipartisan support, is expected to come to the Senate floor soon after the chamber returns from August recess (1"The Tan Sheet" Aug. 16, 2010)
