LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The environmental protection agency has added BPA, a compound in many household products, to its list of "chemicals of concern." BPA is used as an additive in plastics and it's also used in soda cans and food containers, but since animal studies have suggested BPA may be linked to some cases of cancer or heart disease.  FDA officials have now responded by saying the chemical is of "some concern" to infants and children, but that more study is needed.
