"The makers of babies' bottles in the US are to remove a controversial chemical from their products, amid growing concern over its possible effects.
The six manufacturers say they are reacting to consumer demand by removing Bisphenol A (BPA) from their bottles.
But they will continue selling bottles containing BPA in the UK, a decision which has angered campaigners.
The Food Standards Agency insists BPA in UK plastic products is "well below the levels considered harmful".
The chemical is widely used in plastic manufacture and is commonly found in food and drink containers.
There has been growing concern about the possible effects of BPA leaching into babies' feed when bottles are heated.
The current advice for parents is not to pour boiling liquid directly into bottles, not to microwave them or use scratched or worn ones.
Research carried out at Exeter University found that adults with high levels of BPA in their system were more prone to heart disease and diabetes
Dr Iain Lang, who led the study, said: "There is not enough to provide us with the evidence to say there is definitely a link, there is definitely something going on."
I reckon most parents would prefer to err on the side of caution where their baby's health is concerned.
