The American Chemistry Council announced on Friday that “BPA is no longer used to manufacture baby bottles and sippy cups and will not be used in these products in the future.” It’s a big turnaround for an organization that has spent millions fighting efforts to ban BPA in baby products.
The ACC still insists that BPA in babies’ food containers is safe, but says “confusion about these products has become an unnecessary distraction to consumers, legislators and state regulators.”
Looks like a victory won by parents and activists who demanded BPA-free bottles. Bravo! Our next step? Getting BPA out of canned food. Start by asking your grocer to stock BPA-free cans (like Eden Organics).
