FDA's BPA guidelines hit from both sides
The reactions from industry groups have been mixed. The American Chemistry Council’s response was favorable, but also noted that "some of the recommendations are likely to worry consumers and are not well-founded," according to the Los Angeles Times. The Consumers Union, the nonprofit publisher of Consumer Reports, expressed disappointment. “We are concerned that the new advice on reducing exposure puts the onus on consumers to protect themselves until such a ban is put in place,” says Urvashi Rangan, director of technical policy.
