The scoop is at Effect Measure at Scienceblogs.com, with a great pointer from "Jimmy" over on BoingBoing.net: "Someone leaked the minutes for a meeting of food-packaging executives and chemical industry lobbyists seeking to find ways to keep consumers buying goods laced with bisphenol-A. Attending companies included Coca-Cola, Del Monte, Alcoa and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA).""
