In the last several months, Bisphenol-A, (or BPA), an organic compound that mimics estrogen, has made headline news and talked about in many places in detail. Also, California has passed legislature to ban BPA from baby products, and Canada banned the sale of baby bottles containing BPA.
Recently, German company HABA, sent us a statement to reassure parents specifically concerning the safety of HABA baby toys in this regard.
Excerpts from the statement by HABA:
HABA toys for children under 3 years of age are additionally tested after the European Norm for Security of Toys EN71/9 concerning “Organic chemical compounds”.
In this process, allergenic or carcinogenic dispersion colors, flame retardants, monomere (e.g. Bisphenol A), solvents (e.g. Methanol) and other sanitary critical components are tested.
