BPA (Bisphenol A) Expresses Harmful in America

USA in this case Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Representative Edward Markey (D-Mass.), And Senator Chuck Schumer (DN.Y.) has issued the Ban Poisonous Additives Act of 2009 (dangerous additives law year 2009) to ban the use of chemicals bisphenol A (BPA) in all food and beverage packaging. According to regulators, some studies show that there are negative effects caused by BPA, such as disorders of fetal, infant, and children’s nerve cell development in humans.

Various manufacturers and sellers of packaging materials that contain BPA in the USA know the potential hazards and withdraw their products from the store. In early March 2009, the top six baby bottle manufacturers in the USA including Avent, Disney First Years, Gerber, Dr. Brown, Playtex, and Evenflo have agreed to stop using these chemicals in their artificial bottles.

This law states that packaging refill drinks (including baby bottles and thermos) containing BPA is not sold, and other food and beverage packaging (such as canned food) containing BPA is not commercialized. In the law, if the manufacturer can show that there is no way to make food or drink without using BPA, USFDA (US Food and Drug Administration) (BPOM America) can issue a one-year renewable ban on the product. However, the food and beverage packaging must be labeled indicating the use of BPA. FAN
