Baby bottle suppliers phase out BPA

from the New Zealand Herald...
Suppliers of baby products are voluntarily phasing out the use of Bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles due to consumer concern over the safety of the compound.

Food and Grocery Council chief executive Katherine Rich said its members took the step due to consumer demand, and not because it posed a health risk to babies.

BPA is added to many hard, clear bottles and containers, including those for adult drinks, to make them harder.

Australia, Canada, the United States, Denmark and Australia have also taken steps to limit the sale of baby bottles that contain BPA until research demonstrates its safety.

  1. Ms Rich needs to get her head out of the sand. Why would entire countries ban BPA in children's products at the federal level if it were perfectly safe???
