[2012 June] The Huntsman Corporation: BPA and the Molecular Vision of Life

January 17, 2010 - FDA says it's unable to regulate BPA - As 'indirect food additive,' substance is exempt from scrutiny - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - "U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials say they are powerless to regulate BPA, although they have declared the chemical to be a safety concern for fetuses, babies and young children. A quirk in the rules allows BPA makers to skirt federal regulation. 'We may have to go after legislation to change it,' Joshua Sharfstein, the FDA's principal deputy director, told the Journal Sentinel. The newspaper has been investigating the government's lack of regulation regarding BPA for three years."
