Video: Exposing retailers continuing to sell banned BPA-containing baby bottles
In November 2011, the South African government joined countries such as Canada, France, Denmark, China and Malaysia, and banned the importation, distribution and sale of baby feeding products that contain BPA. This is a major step towards a healthier generation of South African babies.
Watch the video clip below of Carte Blanche (28 October 2012) exposing an issue highlighted of how some retailers have continued to sell baby bottles containing BPA despite the government ban introduced in October last year and despite this having been reportedly brought to their attention by CANSA and the BPA Free Babies group.
Let’s hope the publicity around the issue will shame the retailers into doing the right thing, by offering all purchasers of dangerous BPA bottles a free, safe replacement.
