The Healthy Legacy organization warns parents about dangerous plastic baby bottles, and some state legislators plan to propose action.

The problem is bisphenol A, which is used in food and beverage containers, the organization says.

"Leaching of bisphenol A from baby bottles, especially one purchased in Minnesota, is particularly alarming," Lindsay Dahl of Healthy Legacy said. "The last thing a busy parent needs to worry about is finding a baby bottle that doesn't leach toxic additives. Safer products exist; the next logical step is to phase out BPA from baby bottles and other children's products."
