BPA-free Trend

SpecialChem / Apr 24, 2009

Regulatory agencies worldwide, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Commission's Scientific Committee on Food, have assessed the safety of BPA (considered an endocrine disruptor) and concluded that polycarbonate and epoxy resins are safe for food contact applications because the level of exposure to BPA is very low. However, watchdog groups in the U.S. have continued to publicize other studies that say BPA exposure is a health concern. New polymers, available in the market offer alternatives to manufacturers looking for BPA-free plastics.
