On May 26, 2020, the Food Packaging Forum held a webinar featuring a presentation from Anna Soto and Maël Montévil from Tufts University in the US on the observed non-monotonic dose-response of the substance bisphenol A (CAS 80-05-7). The researchers presented and discussed their results recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP), which found a consistent pattern of non-monotonic dose-response relationships in rats between BPA exposure and mammary gland development (FPF reported). The study was carried out within the Consortium Linking Academic and Regulatory Insights on Bisphenol-A (CLARITY-BPA) investigating the chemical, which is widely used in the production of resins applied to food contact materials (FCMs). The recorded webinar and accompanying slides are now available.
