EFSA has re-evaluated the risks of bisphenol A (BPA) in food and proposes to considerably lower the tolerable daily intake compared to its previous assessment in 2015. EFSA's conclusions are explained in a draft scientific opinion that is open for public consultation until 8 February 2022. In its 2015 risk assessment of BPA, EFSA set a temporary TDI of 4 micrograms per kilogram of body weight per day. EFSA opinion " the 95th percentile dietary exposures in all age groups including all infants and toddler groups exceeded the TDI by two to four orders of magnitude." The CEP Panel is aware that the exposure assessment presented in the 2015 opinion may not fully represent the current dietary exposure, and that there is a health concern from dietary BPA exposure for all age groups of the general population.
