|The Baby Products Association has said that a number of manufacturers are seeking alternatives to the chemical Bisphenol A (BPA) to use in their products.
BPA represents one of the world's highest productions of chemicals, with two million metric tons produced worldwide in 2003 and it is used in baby bottles primarily with regard to infant products.
Following Europe's decision in 2004 to set "very low limits" for the amount of BPA contained in products, manufacturers for the nursery industry have been prompted to find alternative materials.
