Abstract

In the present study, two different types of bottles ‘ baby feeding bottles and sippy cups were purchased for the assessment of Bisphenol A migration. A total of 20 samples were collected and analyzed from eight states of India. Eight out of 20 samples were made up of polypropylene (PP), three were made up of polycarbonate (PC) and the other samples were not labeled for the type of plastic.  From the results, it was observed that all 20 samples (made up of PP and PC) showed various levels of Bisphenol A migration in the first and second extraction experiment. Only one sample of baby feeding bottles showed no level of Bisphenol A migration in its second extraction, the same sample showed the lowest concentration in the first extraction.
