California Ban Bpa Childrens Products

As San Diego child injury attorneys, we are happy to share that California has passed the Toxin-Free Infants and Toddlers Act, which protects children from bottles and sippy cups containing the chemical Bisphenol-A.

As we mentioned in a blog post last month, BPA, which is used in many shatterproof plastic baby bottles and other children’s products, has been shown to seep out of containers and into food and drink. As many parents are aware, exposure to BPA has been linked to a wide variety of health problems, including early puberty, breast and prostate cancer, infertility, obesity and neurological and behavioral changes, including autism and hyperactivity.

The law will prohibit manufacture, sale, or distribution of bottles or cups designed for children three years old and younger that contain BPA at a level above 0.1 parts per billion. The law also requires manufacturers to use the least toxic alternative when replacing BPA. It takes effect July 1, 2013.

If your child or someone you love has been seriously injured by a dangerous or defective product, don’t hesitate to contact a San Diego product liability attorney at the Law Offices of Robert Vaage for a free consultation.
