    First it was the toxic pet food and now this. This study was done in 2005. Kind of a long time to wait to issue a recall.

    This might explain why male fish in the Potomac River and other places are showing up with eggs in the testicles.:surprised

    I recall hearing about this in the late 90's. I personaly gave up many plastics at that time. BPA should be done away with in our food chain.
