US: FDA blootstelling aan BPA via verpakking is veilig

28 januari 2015

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) again has affirmed its position that Bisphenol A (BPA) "is safe at the current levels occurring in foods." In a December 5, 2014 update to its webpage memoranda on BPA, FDA further noted that, based on its ongoing safety review of the scientific evidence, "the available information continues to support the safety of BPA for the currently approved uses in food containers and packaging."
The Agency's most recent pronouncement is the result of a four-year review of more than 300 scientific studies on BPA by a scientific working group comprised of FDA experts. Their review was completed in Fall, 2014 (Website, 10 december 2014).
