2012 Press Coverage of BPA Citizen Rulemaking Petition:

Our coalition, the Alliance for a Clean & Healthy Maine, tested infant and toddler food jars and cans for BPA and found BPA in 11 of 12 containers. On Valentines Day 2012, we announced our findings and kicked-off our campaign to get BPA out of food jars. Help us collect signatures to ask the Maine’s Board of Environmental Protection to eliminate BPA from infant and toddler foods sold in Maine. Contact us to learn more.
