BPA or bisphenol A is very common in plastic products such as food containers, baby bottles, etc.

The panel insisted that the FDA ignored many key studies when coming to their decision.

The FDA defended their ruling though stating that it was all based on evidence that was in fron of them.

They also stand by their ruling that current exposure levels to BPA are perfectly safe.

The expert panel was pretty clear though in how they hinted that the FDA could have done much more in regards to looking into BPA.
