Plastic Baby Bottles Containing Bisphenol A

EDM number 1524 in 2007-08, proposed by Susan Kramer on 08/05/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Child care, Health education and preventive medicine and Industrial health and safety.

That this House notes that Bisphenol A, or BPA, a monomer used to make polycarbonate and epoxy resins, has been found to leak from the plastic used in many baby feeding bottles, especially when the bottles are heated or are scratched through repeated washing; notes that the National Toxicology Program, part of the US National Institutes of Health, found that, based on animal experiments, exposure to low levels of BPA `can cause changes in behaviour and the brain, prostate gland, mammary gland and the age at which females attain puberty'; further notes that these products are being withdrawn in Canada as a precautionary measure; commends the decision by Asda and other UK retailers to produce BPA-free bottles; joins the National Childbirth Trust in calling for the clear compositional labelling of plastic baby feeding bottles with Bisphenol A so that parents can make an informed choice; and calls on the Food Standards Agency to urgently review the use of BPA in baby bottles in light of the new evidence.

This motion has been signed by a total of 64 MPs.
