FDA may ban BPA

(CNN)--The FDA will decide as early as today whether it will ban the use of the

controversial chemical BPA in plastic bottles, food cans and other "food

contact" packaging. The agency has been dragging its feet on an anti-BPA

petition from the Natural Resources Defense Council. But that organization

convinced a federal judge to force the agency's hand. The judge ordered the

FDA to respond to NRDC by tomorrow.
