Officials in Suffolk County in Long Island, N.Y., this week voted to ban the sale of baby bottles and sippy cups that contain bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical linked to heart disease and diabetes as well as reproductive, immune system and other health problems. If the ban is enacted, it will be the first such limit in the U.S.
"This is a victory for all consumers, but most of all for our youngest ones," Urvashi Rangan, a policy analyst at the Consumers Union, said in a statement. "We are … hopeful this will have a resonating impact on the rest of the country and the marketplace as a whole."
The ban, however, will only take effect if Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy signs it into law, which he won't do until residents have a chance to weigh in on the issue at a public hearing set for March 16, according to Levy spokesperson Dan Aug.
