FDA Mulls Possible Restrictions on Bisphenol-A


WASHINGTON, March 10 (LID) – Federal regulators will decide this month whether to ban use of the synthetic chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) in all food packaging, officials said.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is considering a BPA ban because of a citizens' petition filed by the National Resources Defense Council in October 2008.

After the regulatory body missed its 180-day deadline to respond to NRDC’s petition that BPA not be allowed as a food additive, the New York-based NRDC filed a lawsuit in June 2010 to force the FDA into ruling on BPA safety.
