O-I has resumed production of glass baby bottles, after 20 years, at a plant in Charlotte, Mich.; Saint-Gobain Containers is reviewing drawings from its archives to spark ideas for new glass baby bottle concepts; and Vitro Packaging is adding capacity for glass baby bottles it’s already producing for consumers in Mexico. The upswing in glass baby bottles, according to the Glass Packaging Institute, is credited to Health Canada’s recent declaration of bisphenol A (BPA), an industrial chemical used to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins, as “toxic” and new bills introduced by members of Congress to ban BPA from children’s products.
