This group of government scientists have come from a variety of agencies including the National Institutes of Health, and are raising concerns over the use of bisphenol A (BPA) in plastic baby bottles.

The government scientists are urging for more tests to be done to check the safety of BPA.

The government scientists have speculated that it is possible that the chemical may have a severely negative impact on the brain and hormonal systems babies.  This could cause growth problems for them over time.

This latest report comes just months after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated that at its current exposure levels, BPA posed no harm to infants or adults.

These government scientists do not see it that way though, and are concerned over the negative impact BPA may have on babies.

An FDA meeting is set for September 16th, with this the issue on the table.
