Grocery Manufacturers Association Statement Regarding FDA Science Board Advisory Report on Bisphenol A (BPA)
Date:10/29/2008

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) today issued the following statement from GMA Senior Vice President and Chief Science & Regulatory Affairs Officer Robert E. Brackett, Ph.D. regarding an FDA Science Board advisory group report on the safety assessment of BPA:

"Recently, a subcommittee of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Science Board was asked to review the FDA's safety assessment for BPA. While we are currently evaluating the subcommittee's report, we are confident that the risk-analysis approach utilized by FDA and a host of regulatory agencies around the world to evaluate the risk associated with BPA exposure is scientifically sound and appropriate.

"Product safety and regulatory decisions are made on the entire body of scientific evidence, which to date supports the safety of BPA. As new science, research and studies are conducted, it is the obligation of our industry and the appropriate regulatory authorities to review that evidence and make the appropriate decisions that ensure the continued safety of our products.

"Product safety and consumer confidence are the foundation of the food, beverage and consumer packaged goods industry. Without it, nothing else we do is possible, and we constantly test and review our products and packaging to ensure their safety.

"While we appreciate FDA's process for reviewing the safety of BPA, it is important to note that the subcommittee is an advisory group only, and that its report is the first step in a multi-step review process. That is why we support FDA's advice to consumers that there is no need to change their purchasing or eating patterns and that food and beverages using packages that contain BPA are safe to consume.

"We call upon the FDA Science Board to consider the full weight of the evidence and opinions of other regulatory bodies from around the world as it considers the subcommittee's report. We look forward
