Buffalo, NY – New York State  Senator Antoine Thompson (D-parts of Erie & Niagara counties) will hold a news conference Friday, September 10th to discuss a new law that bans toxic baby products in New York State.  The bill sponsored by Senator Thompson bans the use of  Bisphenol-A in products for children age three and under. 

The products listed in the bill include pacifiers, baby bottles, baby bottle liners, cups, cup lids, straws and sippy cups.  Studies show that parents have innocently exposed their children to Bisphenol-A for years without knowing the risk.

The bill, (#S3296) which passed overwhelmingly by a vote of  58 to 0 also contains civil penalties for violations of  its provisions.   Parents, along with their children, medical and environmental experts will also be in attendance.
