More on BPA

Several months ago, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) helped break news of a secret meeting where lobbyists from the chemical industry and food companies collaborated on a plan to mislead consumers about the risks of BPA.  You can see the entry on their Enviroblog here, including a damning internal meeting memo. EWG's online community was outraged, and at the EWG's urging, called two of the companies represented by name in the memo to denounce the campaign.  Coca-Cola responded, but as yet, there is no word from Del Monte.
