BPA findings according to the FDA

In this interim stage (using regulations dating from the 60s) the  FDA is claims it is taking reasonable steps to reduce BPA in baby bottles, baby formula cans, canned food linings, and is seeking “further public comment” about the topic.  

I am not waiting for the FDA to help keep BPA out of my drink and food consumption. In its report on BPA, the National Toxicology Program expressed “some concern for effects on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland in fetuses, infants, and children at current human expo­sures to bisphenol A.” That is a serious statement and it may take the FDA years to get out of their “interim stage.”  There are ways to limit your personal consumption of plastic linings listed in the FDA posting.   Update on Bisphenol A for Use in Food Contact Applications: January 2010.
