Baby Bottle Safety
Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association reaffirmed the safety of plastic baby bottles.
"The Panel's conclusions today reaffirm the safety of plastic baby bottles," said Robert Waller, President of The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). "These findings validate the Food and Drug Administration's conclusions and the conclusions of governments and independent scientists worldwide that polycarbonate plastic baby bottles are safe."
Sound and respected scientific research has consistently shown there is no danger to consumers when products are used as intended. The scientists who conducted these safety studies on bisphenol A come from across the globe, and include scientists from: the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. National Toxicology Program, the European Commission Scientific Committee on Food (SCF), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Japanese National Institute of Advance Industrial Science and Technology.
Found in a wide variety of products, lightweight and shatter-resistant polycarbonate plastic has been the material of choice in baby bottles for 25 years. The potential for exposure to bisphenol A from bottles has been extensively examined and the results reviewed by government bodies worldwide that have responsibility for assessing the safety of consumer products.
There is irrefutable data available on the safety of bisphenol A. From baby bottles and food packaging, to bicycle helmets and eyeglass lenses, as well as incubators and components of many life-saving medical devices, polycarbonate plastic makes everyday lives better and safer.
