Last week, Minnesota became the first state to ban bisphenol A (BPA) in children’s baby bottles and sippy cups. At the same time, Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty also signed the Toxic Free Kids Act, which creates a statewide approach to evaluating chemicals in children’s products.
Suffolk County, New York is the only other jurisdiction to have banned BPA in children’s cups. Other states considering a BPA ban include California, Connecticut, Michigan and New York.
