SB 1032, written to protect our Children from BPA, has been rejected...

program date: 
Wed, 03/10/2010

 

Host Erik Jorgensen speaks with Jen Coleman from the Oregon Environmental Council about the recent rejection of SB 1032 by the Oregon Senate. In mid-February the Oregon Senate rejected a bill that would have protected Oregon’s children from exposure to bisphenol A (BPA). SB 1032 would have banned manufacturing, distributing or selling reusable containers made with bisphenol A if the container was designed to be filled with liquid or food intended primarily for consumption by children less than three years of age.

Hundreds of scientific studies show that the chemical BPA is harmful to children’s health. BPA is an industrial chemical produced in billions of pounds each year to make hard, clear polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins. Small amounts of the chemical have been found to leach into food and drink from polycarbonate baby bottles, water bottles and food containers, and from the epoxy lining of metal food and beverage cans. Last month, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expressed concern about BPA and provided guidelines for parents on how to limit their children’s exposure.
