FDA bans BPA from baby bottles

Most of the major bottle manufacturers already produce “BPA-free” bottles, but it’s nice to see (in my opinion) that the FDA is also stepping in. They announced today that BPA, an “endocrine disruptor” (!) is banned from baby bottles
Of course, we still need to watch out for most canned foods because they still contain BPA. Also, note how long it took the FDA to issue a decision:
The Natural Resources Defense Council asked the FDA in 2008 to ban the substance outright from food containers, saying in a petition to the agency that the chemical “causes serious adverse health effects.”
