Baby Bottle Companies Will Stop Using BPA

Connecticut's attorney general says six companies have agreed to stop manufacturing baby bottles that contain Bisphenol-A (BPA). Some studies have indicated that BPA may be harmful to infants.

Attorneys general from Connecticut, Delaware and New Jersey sent letters last October to 11 companies, asking them to stop using the chemical. Avent, Disney First Years, Gerber, Dr. Brown, Playtex and Evenflow have agreed to the request. The companies stopped manufacturing bottles with BPA a couple of weeks ago.

Suffolk County, NY, recently became the first county in the nation to vote on a ban of baby bottles and toddler sippy cups made with BPA.
