Here’s some good news for a change: BPA can no longer be included in sippy cups and baby bottles in the US! From sister site Eat Drink Better:
After a long struggle between government, industry, and consumer advocacy groups, FDA announced [last week] that it would ban controversial BPA from children’s sippy cups and baby bottles.
BPA has been banned in the EU for some time, but here in the U.S. the endocrine disruptor is still allowed in all sorts of products like plastic food containers and cans. The BPA ban only applies to children’s products here in the U.S., and it’s receiving mixed reactions from advocacy groups.
