ACC Calls on FDA to Update Review of Bisphenol A
Date:4/17/2008

ARLINGTON, Va., April 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Chemistry Council (ACC) today sent a letter to FDA Commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach requesting FDA to update its review of the safety of bisphenol A in food contact applications.

The extensive body of scientific study regarding bisphenol A is well documented and well reviewed. Nevertheless, recent media reports have raised concerns about the safety and use of polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins, unnecessarily confusing and frightening the public.

An updated review of bisphenol A in food contact applications, led by the premier food safety agency in the United States - the FDA - will help explain the extensive scientific review that has already been conducted on this compound. And this review will allow the agency to issue the most recent evaluation of all the science, and all agency reviews to date, quickly and in a way that is understandable to the public. We believe that an update by FDA, accompanied by a clear communication from the agency about what the science means, is needed, and ask FDA to move forward promptly with this review. It is important that FDA move as quickly as possible to undertake this review, since the results, regardless of outcome will help better inform the public.

The use of polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins for food contact applications has been and continues to be recognized as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the European Food Safety Authority, the Japanese Ministry for Health, Labor and Welfare, and other regulatory authorities worldwide. Members of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) are committed to openly and transparently sharing environmental, health and safety data with the government and the public. Today, people are living longer, safer and healthier lives through the essential benefits provided by the business of chemistry.
