Environment Canada has declared bisphenol A (BPA) a toxic substance. According to press reports, the move would make it easier for Canada to ban the chemical’s use in specific products through regulations rather than legislative amendments. Canada banned BPA from children’s products in 2008, and six U.S. states have done the same. In September 2010, the European Food Safety Authority declined to regulate the chemical, saying that “data currently available do not provide convincing evidence of neurobehavioral toxicity of BPA.” The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the EPA are reviewing the chemical but have yet to finalize the studies.
