We show that the problem of scattering of light from an achiral object in a chiral environment, which was recently studied by Lindell and Silverman [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 14, 79 (1997)], is merely a straightforward special case of the problem of either a chiral or a bianisotropic object in a chiral environment, solutions of which problem have existed for a while.
