FDA Officially Bans BPA in Baby Bottles and Sippy Cups

FDA bans BPA

In just four years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has drastically changed its stance on bisphenol-A (BPA). In 2008, the agency said the chemical poses no health risk. Just this week, it announced that it will no longer allow BPA in the plastic used to make baby bottles and sippy cups.

In 2010, the FDA began expressing concerns about BPA and infant health, cautioning parents to limit their infants' exposure to the chemical. Previous studies have indicated that BPA is an endocrine disrupter and may cause diabetes, certain types of cancer, reproductive problems, obesity, and neurological disorders.

Some safety advocates say the ban does not do enough to protect infant health, because it does not include BPA used in containers of baby formula. BPA is typically found in plastic bottles and food containers, dental filings, and the linings of metal food cans and infant formula cans.
