Connecticut adopted a ban on bisphenol-A (BPA) this month as Public Act 09-103. Beginning on October 1, 2011, no one may manufacture, sell, offer for sale, or distribute any reusable food or beverage container that contains BPA within the state of Connecticut. The ban will also extend to infant formula or baby food that is stored in a plastic container, jar or can that contains bisphenol-A.

Connecticut is now the second state to enact a ban on BPA.
