WHY IS BPA FREE IMPORTANT?
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a controversial chemical that is used to enhance the clarity and durability of some clear, plastic products. The use of BPA is the subject of discussion, research and public scrutiny as it may lead to negative health effects.1
Though current findings indicate low health risks from exposure to BPA, experts have been unable to come to an agreement regarding appropriate safe levels for consumer products.2 Nevertheless, the Government of Canada has taken steps to ban the use of BPA in baby bottles to reduce newborn and infant exposure.
The AeroChamber Plus* chambers with Flow-Vu* indicator is manufactured without any BPA to eliminate any possible patient risk. The medications taken with our chambers are critical to your health and it is our responsibility to lead in the development of innovative, consumer friendly products.
