Post by Allen » Sat Apr 19, 2008 5:01 pm

Nalgene is stopping production of their tough plastic bottles.
They are removing them from stores.

The real question now is how much is that little BPA Free Sticker on their new product going to cost the consumer? :mrgreen:

this has been going on for quite some time up here. MEC took the Nalgene bottles off the shelves months ago.

the question remains........
what about our FBCooking? are the ziplock and glad bags safe?

These Camelback bottles are priced about the same, and they're BPA free :

I don't know if Freezer bags have BPA or not. I'll try to find out.
It may turn out that the only thing safe to cook on is the old
blue and white speckled Cowboy Enamelware. :lol:

to identify unsafe products look at the recycle symbol. if it is a number "7" it is not safe.

bye bye coffee press! :(
