Big BPA News!

Watch the ABC News clip about the FDA’s official statement about BPA that includes a BornFree cameo here: http://media.vmsnews.com/MonitoringReports/011810/4358929/P002436630/

After years of no official stance against BPA, the Food and Drug administration has just expressed concern over the use of the chemical in food containers. This is huge news.

“The FDA says the agency and the U.S. National Toxicology Program at the National Institute of Health have SOME concern about the potential adverse effects of BPA on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland in fetuses, infants and young children.”

Numerous studies in the last few years have resulted in regional bans of BPA. Attorney Generals from Connecticut, New Jersey and Delaware wrote a letter to 11 baby bottle and formula container companies to discontinue use of BPAs in late 2008. Canada banned the use of BPAs in baby bottles in 2009. In April 2009, Walmart and Toys ‘R Us pulled baby bottles containing BPAs from their shelves.

We’re very pleased that the American federal government seems to be taking steps to completely ban BPAs and keep babies safe! Join us in our mission to spread the news. This week we’re going to raise awareness by hosting a BPA-Free and Proud Week!
