Governor Brown: It's Up to You to Ban BPA in Baby Bottles

By Elisa Odabashian

After five years and millions of dollars spent by the chemical industry to lobby against protecting California's children from baby bottles and sippy cups containing the dangerous chemical Bisphenol-A, known as BPA, the Toxin-Free Infants and Toddlers Act or AB 1319 has been sent to Governor Jerry Brown for a signature. We hope that he will sign this ban into law, as California lags behind ten other states, as well as Canada, China, and the European Union in banning BPA in baby bottles.
