It’s been a few weeks without a BPA story, so here goes: Four parents in Ohio have sued Evenflo, Avent America, Handicraft, Playtex Products, and Novartis for using bisphenol A in their baby products. They’re seeking class action status. [Washington Post]

  1. Are they claiming they used all five brands of bottles? I hope it never comes out that they used liners, or their case will lose all merit.

    Uh, so they can just sue for something that hasn’t been proven to cause harm to children…and their children have shown no deformities, etc? What tools.

    You know what else we haven’t seen in a few weeks? Chinese Poison Train entries. Either they cleaned up their act, or just got much better at hiding it.

    I vote for the latter.

    Drinks from a bottle made from bisphenol A… agaaain.

    Lame. How many deaths are caused from these alleged babykillers? In an ironic twist, I bet these people donate to planned parenthood.

  6. @karlrove: They can the exact same way people are suing to stop vaccinations to be required to enter public schools b/c Dr. Jenni McArthy and Dr. Jim Carrey tell them they cause Autism.

    @theblackdog: Oh ho ho don’t speak too soon. The only reason the Chinese Poison Train seems to have stopped is because of the Beijing Olympics. The government is on high censorship status for anything that would be deeded to be bad press during the run up to 8/8/08. It’s pretty hard to get any real information out of China normally, and the usual people leaking the information are the Hong Kong news outlets. But even they are under some heavy pressure from China to not publish anything really bad that could get to the world press. I think the train will start ‘rolling’ again in September.

    Alright, woo hoo! Class action lawsuit! That means a $700K fine ($500K for the attorneys) and $2 Evenflo vouchers for all members of the class action.
