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.
