The French government has voted to ban the use of bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles.

However, the deputies stopped short of banning the chemical from all plastics, as the opposition parties had sought.

To date, only Denmark and Canada have adopted similar nationwide regulations. A vote on whether to ban the chemical in additional products in France is planned for next year.

BPA is used in the production of polycarbonated plastics and epoxy resins found in baby bottles, plastic containers, the lining of cans used for food and beverages, and in dental sealants.
