5/29/2009-According to Hartford Courant, the Connecticut State House unanimously approved a bill to ban bisphenol A (BPA) from plastic containers used by children and babies. The ban does not take effect until Oct. 1, 2011, and involves only a limited array of products, including reusable food and beverage containers, containers of infant formula and baby food, reusable spill-proof cups, plastic sports bottles, and Thermoses. The bill does not address products geared to the general population, beverage containers, and single-use jars and cans. Under the bill, the existing inventory for retailers can still be sold in stores. The state’s Department of Consumer Protection will be charged with enforcing the ban. Meanwhile, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration continues to maintain BPA is safe.
