FDA Statement on Release of Bisphenol A (BPA) Subcommittee Report
MedSun: Newsletter #35, April 2009

FDA Press Release
Based on all available evidence, the present consensus among regulatory agencies in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan is that current levels of exposure to BPA through food packaging do not pose an immediate health risk to the general population, including infants and babies. However, due to the uncertainties raised in some studies relating to the potential effects of low dose exposure to bisphenol A, FDA has initiated studies to determine whether BPA is leaching into patients.
