The Food and Drug Administration says the controversial chemical BPA (bisphenol-A) can no longer be used in manufacturing baby bottles or sippy cups. The U.S. chemical industry’s chief association, the American Chemistry Council, had asked the FDA to phase out rules allowing BPA in such products in October, after determining that all manufacturers of bottles and sippy cups had already abandoned the chemical due to safety concerns. It is illegal for companies to use substances not covered by FDA rules. Hopefully, the FDA will continue to investigate BPA in other types of food packaging.
