Chicago Bans BPA In Baby Bottles

The Chicago City Council has voted to ban the controversial chemical BPA in baby bottles, says the Associated Press.

The AP says that spokesmen for the ordinance’s sponsors, Aldermen Edward Burke and Manny Flores, said the ban will go into effect early next year.

The new ban differs greatly from the original proposed plan — in which the rights to operate baby bottles within the city limits were to be sold to a consortium of private investors for a lump cash sum.
