A few of our readers have tipped us off about Playtex publishing a list of products that are BPA Free. While some of their products contain BPA and they still maintain that BPA is safe, they wanted to make sure to eliminate any confusion:
“We know recent news coverage has created significant confusion about the use of BPA in plastic baby products,” said Gary Cohen, Vice President and General Manager Playtex®, Energizer® Personal Care Division. “While US and worldwide regulatory bodies continue to deem the ingredient safe, as a leader in infant care products, we are listening to consumer concerns and we believe the right thing to do is eliminate any confusion or doubt that parents may have. For thisreason, we will stop using BPA in our products this year and we offer consumers a chance to immediately switch to BPA-free infant products.”
You can read the press release here.
The good news, is that there are quite a few products on the list that are BPA Free. The full chart is available for download as a PDF. Anyone wanting a free sample of the original Playtex Drop-Ins nurser can fill out the form available on their website. It’s that easy.
Thanks Safe Mama Readers!
