EWG Petition Re: BPA

Tell the Senate to Label BPA

Halimah Allah,

The dangers of the toxic chemical bisphenol A are no secret.

Even tiny amounts of BPA can disrupt the endocrine system. It has been linked to a wide variety of ills, including infertility, cancer, obesity, diabetes, early puberty, behavioral changes in children and resistance to chemotherapy.

In other words, it has no place anywhere in our food or food packaging – yet it continues to be used to coat the insides of most of the 131 billion food and beverage cans made in the U.S. annually.

The good news is, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has introduced the BPA in Food Packaging Right to Know Act, a bill that would require food companies to label packaging that contains BPA.

Click here to tell your senators you have a right to know about BPA in food packaging. Tell them to support S. 821.

This important bill would not only make sure consumers know which food packages contain BPA, but also instruct the Food and Drug Administration to investigate the hazards of trace exposures to BPA through food packaging.

Last year, EWG scientists scrutinized more than 250 canned food brands and found that more than a third of them were still using BPA-based epoxy can linings for all their products.

The BPA in Food Packaging Right to Know Act would make sure American consumers know which products contain BPA and would empower the FDA to investigate and regulate it.

Tell your senators: Support S. 821, the BPA in Food Packaging Right to Know Act.

Thanks for standing with us,

Ken Cook
President, EWG
