Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association Supports Safety of Baby Bottles
Date:4/17/2008

MT. LAUREL, N.J., April 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), which represents the leading manufacturers of baby bottles in the United States, stands by the scientific research indicating that plastic baby bottles are safe. JPMA supports the rigorous scientific evaluation process of the National Toxicology Program's (NTP) Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction. Following an expert panel review last year, this week's release of the draft NTP Brief on bisphenol A (BPA) affirms that there are no serious or high level concerns for adverse effects of BPA on human reproduction and development.

Found in a wide variety of products, lightweight and shatter-resistant polycarbonate plastic has been the material of choice in baby bottles for 25 years. The potential for exposure to bisphenol A from bottles has been extensively examined and the results reviewed by government bodies worldwide that have responsibility for assessing the safety of consumer products.

"The findings in NTP's draft report provide reassurance that consumers can continue to use products made from BPA," said Robert Waller, Jr., CAE, president of JPMA. "Sound and respected scientific research has consistently shown there is no danger to consumers when products are used as intended."

There is significant data available on the safety of BPA. From baby bottles and food packaging, to bicycle helmets and eyeglass lenses, as well as incubators and components of many life-saving medical devices, polycarbonate plastic makes everyday lives better and safer.

JPMA encourages parents to contact the bottle manufacturer if they have a question or concern. Most of the manufacturers have toll-free numbers and many have information posted on their Web sites.

JPMA is committed to educating the juvenile product industry and the public about the safety of polycarbonate baby bottles. To that end, JPMA has established a Web site, http://www.babybottle.org, as a resource for anyone looking to learn more about the safety of plastic baby bottles.

The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association exists to advance the interests, growth and well-being of the juvenile products industry through advocacy, public relations, information sharing, and business development opportunities.
