The Controversy Over BPA-Free Dog Food Containers
Consumers are demanding BPA-free cans, but industry isnt ready with an alternative.
On March 30, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it had rejected a petition from environmentalists that would have banned bisphenol A (BPA) from all food and drink packaging. The scientific evidence at this time, said the FDA, does not suggest that the very low levels of human exposure to BPA afforded through our diets are unsafe. The agency has performed extensive research on BPA, has reviewed hundreds of other studies, and is continuing to address questions and potential concerns raised by certain studies, the news release continued. The agency takes all concerns about BPA seriously and is evaluating them as part of the agencys ongoing oversight of food safety.
