Press Release Summary: While Congress investigates, i play. ® offers a host of BPA free baby products
Press Release Body: (Asheville, NC)-Parenting and environmental watch groups are calling for action, Congress is launching an investigation and one U.S. company is already producing safer baby products. i play.® based in Asheville, NC, has been manufacturing baby feeding products free from BPA and is rapidly expanding its BPA free feeding options.
Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a hormone-disrupting chemical considered to be potentially harmful to human health and the environment. This chemical is used in almost every baby bottle, sippy cup, and formula can sold in America.
BPA exposure has been linked by scientists to cancers, impaired immune function, early onset of puberty, obesity, diabetes and hyperactivity. Yet, it is used in the majority of hard plastic baby toys, cups, and bottles and in formula and food can liners.
How prevalent is this chemical? According to the US Center for Disease Control, Bisphenol-A was detected in 92.6% of the urine samples of Americans ages 6-85.
In 2002 i play.® found that just like with lead and PVC, their European customers had strict regulations regarding BPA content. Based on these concerns and as a part of a commitment to safety and environmental responsibility i play.® responded by producing products free of these potentially harmful chemicals for the US market as well. i play.® Aqua Bottles, bibs, and toys are all BPA, PVC and Lead free.
