Evaluation of Bisphenol A (BPA) in Products Regulated by the State of Washington
Evaluation of Bisphenol A (BPA) in Products Regulated by the State of Washington (Number of pages: 21) (Publication Size: 276KB)
|Description||The Department of Ecology conducted a study to evaluate levels of bisphenol A (BPA) in products regulated by the State of Washington (RCW 70.280). During July 2012, a total of 74 products, including baby bottles, sippy cups, toddler containers, and sports bottles, were purchased from Washington State retailers. A total of 85 samples (including product subcomponents) were sent to a laboratory for analysis of total BPA.
The majority of samples tested (96%) did not contain BPA above a reporting limit of 1 ppm. Two baby bottle samples contained BPA concentrations of 1.0 ppm and 1.3 ppm. One sports bottle tested contained a BPA level of 100 ppm; this sample was labeled polycarbonate and did not advertise “BPA-free” on its packaging.
