[Edit: Fixed the Simpsons reference in the title]
I don't know much about this whole plastic "scare" that's been going around teh interwebs. Someone told me a while ago (~2 years) that you shouldn't drink bottled water that's been sitting around for a long time because of chemicals in the bottles (and this article is from May/June 2006), which means someone had an idea that it was dangerous well before last week. From the NY Times article about this:
While there is debate about how much of a health worry BPA really is, retailers including Wal-Mart have said they are withdrawing baby products made with it. Nalgene, the maker of a popular sports bottle, and the baby-products maker Playtex have announced they will stop using it.Of-fucking-course. Now all you assholes who bought baby bottles or any other fucking food receptacle that was made out of plastic need to go back to Wal-Mart and buy another one. QUICKLY DAMNIT YOUR BABY'S LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!
