In a statement published on July 30, 2013, the American Chemistry Council (ACC) argues that the new study linking BPA exposure to disrupted egg maturation (previously reported on by the FPF), cannot predict the effects of bisphenol A (BPA) exposure to humans. Steve Hentges of the ACC polycarbonate/BPA Group states in the press release that BPA concentrations in the study are vastly higher than concentrations present in the human body. Hentges argues that data from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that typical human exposure to BPA from all sources, including food contact materials (FCM), is approximately 1000 times below the upper safe intake level of 0.05mg/kg established by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
