Connecticut Attorney General Says 6 Companies Agree to Remove
Bisphenol-A From Baby Bottles
Thursday, March 05, 2009  


Print Connecticut's attorney general says six companies have agreed to
stop manufacturing baby bottles that contain Bisphenol-A, a chemical
some studies suggest may be harmful to infants.

Attorneys general from Connecticut, Delaware and New Jersey sent letters
last October to 11 companies, asking them to stop using the chemical.

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal says Avent, Disney First
Years, Gerber, Dr. Brown, Playtex and Evenflow have agreed to the
request.

Blumenthal says the companies stopped manufacturing bottles with BPA a
couple of weeks ago.

On Wednesday, lawmakers in Suffolk County, N.Y., became the first in the
nation to vote on a ban on baby bottles and toddler sippy cups made with
BPA.
