FDA Continues to Drag Its Feet on Bisphenol A

On January 15, 2010 the FDA issued a report saying, at along last, that it was concerned about Bisphenol A (BPA), a toxic additive in plastic so pervasive it is in 90% of urine samples. The FDA said it had “some concern about the potential effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland in fetuses, infants, and young children.” The bad news is that the FDA will twiddle its thumbs for several more years in hopes that manufacturers remove it from production before lawsuits flood in.
As I reported in my article of October 7, 2008, Plastic Outrage – Children in Danger, this public health debacle blew up in the FDA’s face. It is now 15 months later and while their admission of a problem is hard for them to swallow, it was even harder for them to do anything to protect the public. This is simply more evidence of the general uselessness and ineptitude of the FDA’s management team – and that even though the top of that management team is new with the Obama administration their dysfunctional culture marches on.
