Chemicals in Kids Products up for Vote

Posted: Updated:

Two bills to curb the use of certain chemicals in products intended to be used by children are up for votes in the Minnesota House.

The House planned to debate the pair Friday.

One would prohibit the sale of food containers, formula and baby food containing the chemical Bisphenol A. BPA is used to line food cans and harden plastic to make it shatterproof, but some are worried that it contains toxic agents harmful to health. Minnesota previously banned the chemical from plastic baby bottles and sippy cups.

The other bill would bar use of formaldehyde in food, toys and care products designed for young children.
