Chemical industry fought ban of bisphenol A

Reporters Meg Kissinger and Susanne Rust of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reviewed thousands of pages of public records, from IRS documents to financial disclosure filings, to get inside the chemical industry's push to fight a ban on bisphenol A, a chemical used in hard, clear plastics, including baby bottles. Their analysis showed the industry has turned to many of the same tactics — and people — used by Big Tobacco to fight government regulation. The two reporters also found Statistical Assessment Service (STATS), a group purporting to be an independent media watchdog, has ties to the industry and groups that fight deregulation.
