EFSA publishes opinion on bisphenol A

Tuesday 30 January 2007

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published its opinion today on the safety of the use of bisphenol A in food contact materials. These materials are used in some plastic bottles and the coatings used inside many cans.

The Agency welcomes the clarity provided by EFSA as there has been some scientific uncertainty about the low-dose effects of bisphenol A on human health. The report provides reassurance about the safety of bisphenol A at the levels that may be found.
