Environmental Group Sues FDA for Failure to Regulate Bisphenol A

The National Resources Defense Council filed a suit last week against the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for failing to regulate Bisphenol A, more commonly known as BPA.

Developed in the 1930's as a synthetic form of estrogen, it was later transformed into a plastic used in food containers, such as baby bottles, sippy cups and reusable water bottles. BPA also exits in the resin lining of canned food and beverages such as beer and soda.
