Poison Bottle Update
So I freaked out my coworker who has two small boys and used the same bottles mentioned in the previous post. She contacted friends in Europe who informed her the Avent bottles (and other BPA containing bottles) are not banned in Europe, as I'd read on some sites. She found this and this. The first, compiled by, as far as I can tell, a completely independent source brings up some good points about how rodent models may be inappropriate for testing BPA exposure. The second is from a website sponsored by the Polycarbonate/BPA global group. Might not be the most unbiased information source around.
Either way, we've switched bottles 'cause dangerous exposure or not the milk in those bottles smelled & tasted awful. Here's what manufacturer of the offending bottles has to say.
