California Proposes to List BPA as a Proposition 65 Reproductive Toxin

The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (“OEHHA”) is proposing listing bis-phenyl A (“BPA”) as a reproductive toxin under Proposition 65.  In addition, OEHHA is also proposing a maximum daily exposure level of 290 micrograms per day. Public comments on the proposed listing must be received by 5 PM on Monday, February 25, 2013, and public comments on the proposed MADL must by 5 PM on March 11, 2013.

BPA is in a wide variety of hard, clear plastics.

Proposition 65’s warning requirement takes effect one year after listing.
