California to vote on BPA ban today

Posted by Safer States on Sep 9, 2009

Sippy_cup_toddler_250 The nation is watching California today as the state assembly considers banning BPA in food and beverage containers intended for children.

The American Chemistry Council spent $500,000 on a campaign to defeat the ban.

The state senate voted to approve a BPA ban in June and the measure was then passed along to the assembly.

Connecticut, Minnesota and Canada have passed similar bans. Supporters rallied in Sacramento last week, carrying their message to the capitol that a chemical associated with endocrine-related diseases like diabetes and infertility doesn’t belong in baby bottles and sippy cups.
