Nalgene to pull certain bottles
Nalgene, long time maker of water bottles for outdoor users, has announced it will be pulling bottles made with the controversial bisphenol A chemical (BPA) from store shelves. The full release from Nalgene is viewable here on their website. You can also read more about it from various major news networks including msnbc here.
My understanding is that the bottles in question are the popular hard plastic Nalgenes that we have all used for so many years. Nalgene has a special webpage with details on their bottles here. The chemical industry experts are saying that the low level of BPA present is not a concern. Health experts suggest further studies are in need. Nalgene, to their credit, is taking a big step here. Please pass along any other info if you come accross good sources on the web.
