Glass Baby Bottles Hit The Market To Answer Concerned Parents' Fears Of Plastic

Earlier this month, several consumer groups announced that heated plastic baby bottles leach bisphenol A “in amounts that were within the range shown to cause harm in animal studies.” Now a reader writes in to tell us that companies are already starting to respond to the issue with announcements that they’ll be releasing glass bottles in addition to plastic versions.

David writes, “I’d be interested to hear if Babies R Us and other retailers (or the bottle companies) would offer an exchange to concerned parents.” Somehow we doubt that will happen unless there’s an official plastic bottle recall in the future.
