babywithbottleWhile the FDA dillydallied on reviewing its earlier ruling that bisphenol A (BPA) poses no threat to health, researchers at the National Institutes of Health — basing their findings on 2009 findings — linked BPA to the interference of brain development both in newborns and the unborn. As a result, the attorneys general of Connecticut, New Jersey and Delaware wrote a joint letter to the six primary manufacturers of baby bottles, urging them to stop using BPA in their products.
The six companies — Avent, Disney First Years, Gerber, Dr. Brown, Playtex and Evenflow — have now volunteered to ban BPA from their baby bottles. Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has called the action “a major public-health victory”.
The European Food Safety Authority and the FDA still maintain that BPA poses no harm to humans. Nearly one year after American Association for Health Freedom (ANH-USA) petitioned the FDA to remove BPA from dental sealants and composite fillings used in children’s mouths, the agency has yet to respond.
