FDA Bans BPA from Baby Bottles 29768

The chemical compound bisiphenol-A, otherwise known as BPA, can no longer be used to make baby bottles and sippy cups because of health and safety concerns, the Food and Drug Administration has announced.  Every major manufacturer of bottles and sippy cups has already stopped using BPA, and parents are familiar with "BPA Free" labels on those and other plastic products.
