Yesterday, Margaret Nearing blogged about plans to declare bisphenol A a dangerous substance. A number of retailers are following suit with announcements they’re pulling products that contain the compound from their shelves.
Health Canada spokesperson Alastair Sinclair meanwhile is denying reports that the Health Minister plans to make a public statement this week regarding the Bisphenol-A (BPA) compound currently making headlines.
“The reports that the minister is expected to speak are wrong,” Sinclair told a Reader’s Digest representative.
“The minister was slated to talk about this issue in mid-May. Now with all the public attention, there’s a chance this could take place sooner, but that’s all we know for now.”
