"The Food and Drug Administration has agreed to ban the use of a chemical linked to health problems in infant formula packaging."
"The FDA’s decision to prohibit of bisphenol A (BPA) comes at the urging of Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), who filed a petition calling for the action last year.
'This is a major victory for America’s families, and I join with parents in celebrating safer feeding time for their babies now that this toxic chemical will forever be banned from infant formula,' Markey said in a written statement Thursday.
The rule will take effect immediately after it is published in the Federal Register later this week."
