The blogosphere and the TV air waves have been abuzz with information on BPA or Bisphenol-A, in the last few days and weeks. There are some exciting new developments to mention and I wanted to give some quick updates on BPA free products I have not highlighted before.
For quick reference you can visit these other posts I have done on Bisphenol-A and BPA free products:
So what is the latest news?
Canada is banning baby bottles tainted with BPA! Read this article for more information. Go Canada!
The federal government announced Friday it intends to ban the import and sale of polycarbonate baby bottles containing bisphenol A, making Canada the first country in the world to limit exposure to the controversial chemical.
In response to Canada’s bold move Wal-Mart has announced that they will remove all BPA baby bottles from shelves in US stores by 2009.
These are is a good developments but lest we forget that baby bottles are NOT the only product affected by BPA…what about toys, pacifiers, cups, plates, formula can liners, etc??? We need to do better here.
Until BPA is completely banned we need to be vigilant about what products we buy and what companies we support. So here is a listing of some BPA free products that I have not previously mentioned:
