FDA splits up BPA report

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

FDA released a draft assessment Aug. 15 downplaying the toxicity and health risks of the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) in food-contact applications, such as baby bottles and drink containers, and will issue a separate report focused on medical products at a later date, the agency says. NIH's National Toxicology Program released a report in April on the potential for BPA to leach from plastics in consumer products and some medical products (1"The Gray Sheet" May 12, 2008, p. 6). The BPA subcommittee of FDA's science board will meet Sept. 16 to discuss the food-related report
