July 30 US: BPA no longer allowed in baby bottles

From: Boston

The federal government announced Tuesday that baby bottles and sippy cups can no longer contain bisphenol-A, or BPA, the plastic chemical which has been subject to years of scientific scrutiny.

The U.S. chemical industry’s chief association, the American Chemistry Council, had asked the Food and Drug Administration to phase out rules allowing BPA in those products in October, after determining that all manufacturers of bottles and sippy cups had already abandoned the chemical due to safety concerns.

Public safety advocates said Tuesday that FDA’s action on baby bottles and sippy cups would have little impact, since the BPA-containing products are no longer in use.
