BPA question

Alright, call me cynical, but how do we know that the companies who formerly used BPA in their plastic products are no longer using BPA? How do we know they didn't just change the little number stamper that imprints on the bottom of these items?

  • Because unlike, China, consumers in America would (and will) happily sue the pants off of a company as soon as they get wind of corruption. There could even be criminal repercussions. It doesn't mean it couldn't happen, of course, it's just far less likely. It would be impossible for an American infant product company to ever recover from a fiasco like China's recent fiasco.
