BPA has been studied, tested and safely used for over 50 years. It has been assessed by health authorities around the world including the European Commission's Chemicals Bureau (ECB), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.
