bpa warning. read this.

While I'm busy banging my head against the wall trying to figure out how to work a piece of desktop publishing software that I've never used before, please read this important post about BPA (Bispehenol A).

As for me, I'm heading to my kitchen to throw away a while bunch of plastic stuff that could give Csilla boobs before her time.

Thanks for sharing this important information Buzz!

thanks for the link love, sweet pea.

we called Avent this morning. yup - it ALL has BPA. recycle #7 - the worst.

check out their website and they STILL claim it has no harmful effects.

part of me thinks these people are no better than tobacco companies, yet they make BABY BOTTLES! wtf.

thanks for spreading the word.

Don't worry about blogging - earn some dosh instead! Sounds exciting and just what your clever brain needs to keep you sane. I'll check in with you to see how you are doing from time to time. Good luck.

SO glad you're spreading the word about this! And GO CANADA. I read that you guys pulled all BPA items from the shelves. Not so lucky here.

I had tons Avents around the house but stopped using them when Donald was around 7 months because I kept reading and reading and reading more and more warnings about it. I decided to NOT wait for my govenment to step up. We went to glass bottles, then when I stopped nursing/pumping, we went to the "Born Free" line...all BPA free.

And not to freak you out even more, but generally, I avoid heating ANYthing in plastics. If it's a frozen meal, I transfer it to a plate before zapping. That's why I love the "Amy's" line of (organic) foods. Don't know if it's available in Canada, but they do not use plastics in their packaging. Plastic scare me!

When this news broke this week, I passed it along to my 2 mommy groups...sadly, not very many girls seemed too concerned...probably b/c our government still has yet to take a stand on this.

Thanks for posting!

Wouldn't you know it. Another reason to have to worry. It really gets my goat when they probably knew all along. Thanks for the heads up Carolyn.
