From: Food Quality News

The European Commission said it wants to introduce a region-wide ban on the use of bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles and has launched discussions with member states over the matter.

The decision to pursue a ban on the chemical in polycarbonate baby bottles comes in the wake of an updated opinion delivered by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) at the end of September.

“There have been a few meetings with stakeholders and the Commission has the intention to move towards a ban of BPA in baby bottles,” EC health and consumer spokesman Frederic Vincent told FoodProductionDaily.com. “The Commission is committed to a BPA ban in baby bottles but it will have to be discussed by member states.”
