For those of you keeping up with the BPA saga, did you hear the news about Nalgene? My beloved Nalgene has been one of the most tenacious defenders of the safety of Bisphenol-A in their products. Thanks to pressure from Canadian outdoor stores, Canada’s Ministry of Health, consumers, and (of all things) the Today show, Nalgene introduced a new line of BPA-free choices last week. Then, a few days later, issued a press release that they will no longer produce any products with containing BPA. Huge news!
In other BPA news, according to Z Recommends, Walmart Canada has announced it will immediately pull all BPA bottles, sippy cups, pacifiers, food containers, and water bottles from their shelves. Walmart US claims they will phase out BPA bottles (only) by 2009.
No word from the Big Formula on eliminating BPA from formala containers. Surprised?
And once again, the FDA, is ignoring the issue altogether–even in the face of congressional subpoenas.
Oh dear, the EPA, is also under congressional review for its cozy ties to the American Chemistry Council.
