FDA to revisit BPA safety

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

FDA will take a second look at bisphenol A in containers, said Commissioner Peggy Hamburg at a House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee hearing June 3. Committee Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., asked Hamburg June 2 to reconsider the "possible dangers" of BPA at current exposure levels. He questioned FDA's conclusion under the Bush administration that BPA is safe and urged Hamburg to scrutinize FDA's reliance on industry studies (1"The Tan Sheet" Aug. 25, 2008, In Brief). FDA is reevaluating another Bush era move - its 2006 decision to restrict sales of OTC emergency contraceptive Plan B (2"The Tan Sheet" April 27, 2009, p. 6)
