FDA bans BPA in baby bottles — but what does it really mean?


Too little, too late is how Janet Nudelman, the Breast Cancer Fund's Director of Program and Policy, characterizes the FDA's decision to ban BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups. The ban, announced today, will have little impact on the market, which has already turned away from BPA in children's products.

[G]iven that Canada, the European Union, China, and at least five other countries as well as 11 U.S. states have prohibited the use of BPA in children’s products, that every major baby bottle manufacturer has already stopped using the chemical, and that BPA is also found in canned food linings, some infant formula containers and other food packaging, this action is too little, too late.

Now the FDA needs to catch up. The FDA needs to take decisive action to ensure that all of us are protected from this toxic chemical.

  1. I recently noticed when cleaning a Jack LaLane black power juicer from Wall Mart, I noticed a silvery green haze washing on to my black kitchen sink, & noted it more after the second use when I only rinsed the hard plastic parts with just cold water.
    I guess most people don’t have a black sink, but I do, and I notice in the light that the hard plastic parts have also a silver green haze. what is it? an oil used in the manufacruring?
