Toxics Action Center

Report Supports Maine BPA Ban

Members of the Toxics Action Center gathered in Portland this morning to release a report on the scientific evidence supporting a statewide ban on the chemical Bisphenol A or BPA.

A ban is being considered by the Maine Board of Environmental Protection under the auspices of Maine's new toxic chemical control law, the Kids-Safe Products Act. The law gives the BEP the ability to identify and prioritize toxic chemicals based on their danger to human health and the environment and then phase out their use in consumer products.
