The FDA announced earlier this month its intention to reevaluate the safety of BPA in packaging, promising a decision on the matter by March 31, 2012. That announcement was prompted by a petition filed by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) back in 2008. In the meantime, French lawmakers voted in late February to uphold a ban on the use of BPA in all packaged foods. That law is likely to lead to E.U.-wide legislation on the matter, which would make it financially untenable for U.S. food manufacturers that sell into Europe to continue using BPA, irrespective of U.S. legislation.
