BPA May be Banned in Food Packaging

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that it will decide by March 31 whether or not Bisphenol-A (BPA) should be banned from all U.S. products.

According to Forbes, the move comes as a result of a 2008 lawsuit that was filed against the FDA by the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) that claimed the agency ignored a petition to ban the use ofBPA in food packaging.

Lawmakers in France have recently voted to ban BPA in all food packaging, which will affect all U.S. food and beverage packaging exports for items such as juices, frozen seafood and meats. Denmark has banned the chemical in all baby food products and Japan has replaced its BPA resin can liners.

Recent studies have linked the chemical to cancers, reproductive problems and issues in fetal brain development.
