Applause for Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, they are not phasing out BPA-containing baby bottles until 2009, but at least it’s something. Canadians should already see Wal-Mart has removed products with BPA from store shelves. I am disapointed Wal-Mart is not removing these products from all stores right away. If it’s toxic, it’s toxic.
“Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, announced today, that it was immediately removing baby bottles and other products made with bisphenol A (BPA) from its Canadian stores presently, and baby bottles containing BPA from its U.S. stores next year, coupled with Nalgene’s announced plans to phase out all BPA bottles was applauded by environmental health organizations.” Read more….

IS BPA IN PLASTIC PLATES AND BOWLS FOR KIDS ALSO?
I believe it is in some. I know the first year’s take and toss cultery is safe (#5 plastic). I have these for my daughter and like them. I have stainless steel sets for her too, which are also BPA-free.
The Soft Landing has a great guide for this:
I was in a Walmart store in Atlantic Canada today, June 1 & decided to call the 1800 on Nuby packaging to confirm if their products were BPA free. To my suprise 80% of the items I checked with them were not BPA free.
I hope that everyone is still checking when they buy items and not taking it for granted that the retailers are looking after our families.
