Bill Details

5/5/11
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 6 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO PROTECTING THE HEALTH OF CHILDREN BY PROHIBITING BISPHENOL-A IN PRODUCTS FOR YOUNG CHILDREN.
This bill protects the health of young children by prohibiting the chemical bisphenol-A in certain children’s products such as bottles, cups, and other containers used for food or beverages. Bisphenol-A, or BPA is a chemical used to help harden plastic and is found in many plastic food storage containers. BPA is a known hormone disruptor. Tests have shown that trace amounts leach out of the containers and into foods and liquids. BPA-free products exist. This legislation is modeled after similar legislation in Minnesota and seven other states.
