Baby Bottles

Six baby bottle companies have agreed to stop using Bisphenol-A (BPA) in baby bottles in response to concerns about serious health risks associated with this chemical.

In a March 5, 2009 press release, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal announced that the nation's six major baby bottle companies have agreed to stop using the toxic chemical Bisphenol-A (BPA) in baby bottles -- a significant public health step that he asked them to take.

According to Blumenthal, BPA has been linked to a number of health problems in children, including damage to the reproductive, neurological and immune systems.

The Attorney General is pushing for a complete ban of BPA from certain children's products.
